Like many players, Steve Francis came to the New York Knicks and his basketball career instantly went downhill, ultimately leading to his retirement in 2008 at age 31. However, the early end to his basketball career didn’t damper Francis’ spirits, and the former all-star point guard went into music.
Without further ado, here’s Francis’ “Finer Things.” Thank me (or, more likely, look up my address so you can shoot me) later.
I think it’s safe to say it would behoove Francis to find another use for his time and money.
So first of all, the Boston Celtic who missed the entire season after undergoing heart—yes, heart—surgery wants food that definitely isn’t good for his heart. Secondly, if someone would deliver you food upon request, wouldn’t you ask for something better anyway?
You’re in the majority if you’ve never heard of Slava Medvedenko, especially if you’re not a Laker fan. However, while his seven-year career was rather mediocre—and that’s being very generous—Slava produced one of the funnier interviews you’ve never seen.
That leaves us with our quote of the day: “Eh, you know… I just do deedidengenoff.”
After spending more than two years out of the NBA, Gerald Green earned a 10-day contract with the New Jersey Nets in February and made the most of it. He’s averaging 13.1 points per game, drawing lots of attention in the process.
Jonathan Abrams of Grantland wrote a feature on Gerald Green’s return to the NBA. Last year, Green signed with a team in China but was cut early in the season after the team’s slow start. Abrams quoted the former dunk contest winner:
“In China, what was so messed up is you play 35, 36 games,” he said. “We had only played four games and you’re already making decisions? We’ve still got another 34 games left.”
Green, who made the jump from high school to the NBA, clearly could use a simple lesson in mathematics. 4+34 = 38 Not 35 or 36.
In all seriousness, check out Abrams’ feature—especially if you’re in need of a pick-me-up.
Forget the fact that JaVale McGee misspelled “eavesdrop” and “metal.”
What I’m really wondering is how a goofy seven-footer could possibly ease drop, eavesdrop, whatever on a conversation. Knowing JaVale, he probably thought he was being super sly but really couldn’t have been more obvious.
