The Orlando Magic, like every team in the NBA, will close out the 2013-14 regular season schedule on Wednesday and it might be the last time Jameer Nelson wears the uniform. Nelson is signed through next season, however only $2 million of his $8 million salary is guaranteed, if he's waived by July 15. He could also be used to help facilitate a trade before the guarantee date for a team looking to increase their salary cap room. Nelson, of course, prefers to stay with the Magic.

QB Blake Bortles has sucked up all of the national attention when it comes to Central Florida prospects, which has left RB Storm Johnson flying under the radar. Bortles, a potential first overall pick, rightfully carries far more hype than Johnson, who didn't land in ESPN NFL Insider Mel Kiper Jr.'s Top 10 RB rankings.

Indiana's starters have logged a ton of minutes this season, and many believe that's one reason for the Pacers' second-half slide. Frank Vogel rested his starters against Milwaukee last week, and still managed to come away with a win, and it looks as though he'll go with that approach for the regular season finale on Wednesday.

UPDATE: The ESPN Forecast panel has historically been very accurate with their NBA predictions, which makes their forecast of the Sixth Man of the Year award all the more interesting.

Throughout Jason Hanson's 21-year tenure with the Detroit Lions, fans of the team knew they could count on having quality kicking as much as they could count on not winning playoff games. He retired after the 2012 campaign and the Lions weren't satisfied with what they got out of David Akers last season and let him walk. Now, the Lions have just John Potter and Giorgio Tavecchio, who are unproven at the pro level.
