Steve Francis, Not Ballin, Still Enjoying the “Finer Things”

Just 13 years ago, Steve Francis was a premier NBA point guard. Drafted no. 2 in the 1999 draft, he went on to win Rookie of the Year; was a three-time All Star (2002-2004); and participated in two dunk contests - including the Vince Carter classic in 2000.

After nine years, playing for three playoff-caliber teams — feel free to deduct the short-stint with the Knicks — Steve Francis was waived by the Houston Rockets in 2008. Which gave him the opportunity to take his talents to China - that didn’t last.
