In honor of his 10 years with the Orlando Magic, the organization has placed two billboards in Orlando to thank Jameer Nelson for a decade of legendary moments. The billboards are located at the SR 408 and Kirkman exchange and on I-4 just south of downtown Orlando between the Michigan Ave. and Orange Blossom Trail exits.  

The Magic have also dedicated the home page of OrlandoMagic.com to the guard, which can be found at this link: www.nba.com/magic/thankyou-jameer-nelson. ; The outside of the Amway Center has also donned the same "thank you" messaging.

Nelson was originally selected by Denver in the first round (20th overall) of the 2004 NBA Draft, but was acquired by Orlando in exchange for a future first round pick on draft night.  He played in 651 career NBA regular season games (556 starts), all with Orlando, averaging 12.6 points per game, 5.4 assists per game. and 3.1 rebounds per game in 29.2 minutes per game, while shooting .374 (874-2,335) from three-point range and .817 (1,092-1,337) from the free throw line.  He also appeared in 44 career playoff games, averaging 15.0 points per game, 4.6 assists per game and 3.5 rebounds per game in 32.5 minutes per game.

Nelson stands as the franchise's all-time leader in assists with 3,501.  He also ranks second in games played (651) and field goals attempted (7,033), third in minutes played (19,038), three-pointers made (874) and three-pointers attempted (2,335), fourth in scoring (8,184 points) and field goals made (3,109) and fifth in steals (619).  He was named an NBA All-Star in 2009 and earned the NBA's Eastern Conference Player of the Week honor twice (periods ending Dec. 21, 2008, Jan. 18, 2009).  Nelson was also named to the 2004-05 NBA All-Rookie Second Team.
