I added a base layer with spatial reference 102100. When I try to add a point and a symbol to it, it throws an error at - graphics is null. Here is my code

var pt= new esri.geometry.Point(x,y,sr);
var sms= new esri.symbol.SimpleMarkerSymbol(...);
var label = new esri.Graphic(pt,sms);;

Firebug shows label holds the pt and sms values. What could be causing the issue?
