15 Photos You Won’t Believe Are Of Former NBA Star Steve Francis

 

If you’re into hoops, chances are you remember Steve Francis. The high flying guard tore up the NCAA for a couple of years at Maryland and, for a handful of years, looked like he was on his way to being an all-time great in the NBA. Well, that didn’t happen.

Then, he was out the league. Francis never adjusted his game to his diminishing athleticism. It got to the point where Chinese team, the Beijing Ducks, gave Stevie Franchise a $800K contract before cutting him after a couple of weeks. Ever since, Francis has been appearing in photos looking like he’s had a very hard life.

It’s been disheartening to see this guy who was a hoops hero basically looking like your run of the mill dope fiend. In the following pages, here are 15 such examples.

    “Damn, homie, you used to be the man homie, what the fawk happened to you?!”

    Honestly, the song isn’t bad. I listened but didn’t watch the vid.
    He needs to snatch his life back though, and snatch it fast.

      Get off the crack yourself. That song sucked and the video was even worse! I feel sorry for no one who destroys their own life. All these over paid actors and musicians get to full of them selfs and think they sh!t don’t stink, then when they fall off want everyone to feel sorry for them. Fu@K that! They can lick nuts and die for all I care. Make yo money, buy a $200,000 house, normal car, help in the community and don’t have 11 kids by 7 different baby mommas! Basically live like a normal person that gives a sh!t and live the rest of yo live happy & healthy.

    My man Steve is all done. Difficult to see.

  • jd2331

    He only played 1 year at Maryland, not a “couple”. At least get your facts straight before you pro proceed to rip a guy who is obviously struggling. Amateur hour.

  • Yahmule

    I’ll bet Isiah Thomas would still trade for him.

  • AJ

    If we MUST speculate an addiction I would say the obvious swelling and blood shot eyes are more symtematic of alcoholism. I do wish him well whatever his situation may be. His clothing and weight appear to still be intact, and he still has jewelry. So maybe just maybe he looks worse than he actually is. I am praying for he and his family. Still a fan of his good times and the NBA All-Star legacy that nothing will ever be able to take away. That my friend goes to the grave with him. Good Luck Stevie, I am rooting for you!
