Ten years ago, Steve Francis had one of the brightest futures in the NBA. Despite being a great individual talent, Francis was not the best team player in the world. Drafted by what would become the Memphis Grizzlies, he turned off fans because he refused to play for the team.

Sent to the Houston Rockets, Steve Francis briefly played alongside Hakeem Olajuwon. However, Steve Francis failed to make the playoffs each of his seasons in Houston, even after Yao Ming joined the team. Soon, Francis was traded to the Orlando Magic.

While the team was explosive and Steve Francis shined, the franchise still suffered. When Dwight Howard began emerging as a star, Francis was traded. Following his short stint with the New York Knicks, Steve Francis was sent to several teams. Quickly, he was benched because teams had no time for his antics and Steve Francis soon discovered no NBA team wanted him.

Steve Francis last played in the Chinese Basketball Association. Back in May 2010, Steve Francis reportedly groped a 20-year-old woman through her clothes. The woman immediately went to the police to file a report. Apparently, the woman is a singer signed to Steve Francis' record label. When they met at his office to discuss the contract, Steve Francis groped her.
