The last time we checked in on former NBA player Steve Francis, he was getting strangled by his own chain at a club. When Francis showed up courtside at a Dec. 12 Lakers-Rockets game, his appearance was apparently so concerning that TMZ had to publish a report today assuring the public that the 38-year-old was not…
The internet distraction of the day is How-Old, an app that determines a person’s age through some secret calculations that aren’t quite clear. It’s fun for a laugh. The site can be surprisingly accurate or very wrong, and frankly, rude as hell. We plugged in a few faces from the sports world and see what How-Old spit…
It's time for yet another edition of What the Hell is Going on With Steve Francis? Today's episode takes us to a club in Miami, where Francis was filmed grooving to "Drunk in Love" by himself while pouring booze all over his own head and face. At the end, he just falls right the hell over. It's all very sad.
Is this video of Steve Francis walking into a glass door? It just might be!
Former NBA star Steve Francis recently attended some sort of event in Luizhou, a prefecture in China's Guangxi region, at which many unfortunate photos were taken. Francis is only 37 years old, but he looks rough.
We haven't heard from Steve Francis in a while. Last we checked in, he was being welcomed like a king in China—then left his team after playing less than 14 minutes. Seems he's living back in Houston (in a pretty nice house, so don't worry about Stevie), and buying classic cars, and, allegedly, not paying for them.
Your morning roundup for July 23, the day after we learned that high-school tennis coaches really might want to stay away from strip-club ownership.
This is just dag nasty. But at least the Orlando Magic guard has found an activity to keep him occupied while bench-riding. I love the reaction these guys had while watching the horrifying booger excavation take place.
The thoughts of various individuals in this picture:
Inspired by this photo of New York Knicks malcontents Stephon Marbury and Steve Francis, deranged NBA blogger J.E. Skeets imagines what a sideline conversation between the two might go like.
A reader tips us to the photo that was on the ESPN front this morning: "You know how they say 'a picture's worth a thousand words?' Check out this photo from the front page of ESPN.com's web site this morning. Larry Brown's countenance pretty much sums it up. Funny picture."
As the NBA trading deadline looms, it will be hard to top the big trade that brought Steve Francis to New York — thus insuring an NBA championship for the Knicks next season (just kidding, they're doomed). The Knicks sent Penny Hardaway and Trevor Ariza to Orlando. Personally, we think the trade makes as much sense…
And Larry Brown will hate them both.
In response to our Steve Francis-Cuttino Mobley item from earlier today, a "lowly paid" source "familiar with the Rockets laundry room" sends us a depressing tip:
We had a few people tell us about this, but we still hadn't gotten around to reading ESPN: The Magazine — to steal Gregg Easterbrook's classic line, published on Earth: The Planet — and it's reportedly amazing story about the unusual "friendship" between former teammates Cuttino Mobley and Steve Francis.
