Where is Steve Francis.

Has another player fizzled out as fast as he did? Any sightings?

Re: Where is Steve Francis.

I don't care what anyone says. I miss the days of Francis proclaiming he and Cutt Mobley were the best backcourt in the L.
That and Starbury calling himself the best PG. The league misses those comments.

It's that lazy eye. Makes him look almost as old as Greg Oden.

Re: Where is Steve Francis.

Last I heard he was rehabbing the hamstring, but no idea where he is now. I think he's a FA out there, but the guy is pretty much done.

I don't think so. The guy went from superstar to a guy nobody wanted, to being out of the league in the span of just a couple years. I still find it hard to believe he couldn't help some team out. Chances are hes blackballed.

Re: Where is Steve Francis.

I dont recall other than the situation when he was drafted that he really did anything to out the ordinary. What would he had been blackballed for?

I couldn't say. Just seems weird that he can't get another shot with a crappy team. At worst it would sell a few tickets. At best he turns out to be a decent contributor.

He performed a really impressive dunk last season in a game, so I don't think he's completely lost his athleticism.

Re: Where is Steve Francis.

The Heat could use him. As could many other teams. There has to be some reason he hasn't got a 10-day contract offer. Whether that's because of him wanting big money or starter minutes, or because of the league is what I don't know.

Re: Where is Steve Francis.

He's not in the league because he only knows how to play the game one way, and with how his athleticism dropped off he can't do the things he used to. He was at his best when he was able to dominate the ball and take bad shots late in the shot clock. He never learned how to play without the basketball which is a damned shame.
