Steve Francis Writes About How He Went From Selling Crack To NBA Star


Former NBA star Steve Francis published a piece for The Player’s Tribune today titled, “I Got a Story to Tell,” which begins, “I remember the exact moment when I realized NBA legends weren’t SHIT.”

In the story, Francis, 41, opens up about his journey to the NBA and how unlikely it seemed that he would go from selling crack in Washington D.C. at the age 18, to being drafted second overall by the Vancouver Grizzlies in the NBA Draft at 22 years old.  

In addition to stories about growing up in D.C. and hanging with Hakeem Olajuwon as a rookie, Francis also opens up about his post-NBA career and his run-ins with the law.
