Denton's Dish: The 5th Quarter (2/23/14)



Nelson has never been one to care very much for statistics, but even he is somewhat shocked by the legacy that he is leaving behind with the Magic organization. He knows that most of his statistics are because of his longevity with the franchise. He takes great pride in having worn only a Magic jersey throughout his 10-year career.

``Any time you are complimented by being mentioned in the same sentence as these guys that I am fortunately able to pass in these stats and records, it’s a honor,’’ Nelson said. ``And it’s a tribute to the organization as well with me being here so long. Also (it’s a tribute) to my coaches that I have had who put me in situations to be successful.’’
