Stevie 'hurts the' Franchise

February 2006
Sporting News;2/3/2006, Vol. 230 Issue 5, p50
The article focuses on basketball player Steve Francis of the Orlando Magic. A scorecard is not normally kept on such trivialities, but since last January, Magic guard Steve Francis has moped incessantly over the team-sanctioned divorce from Cuttino Mobley, skipped a practice to celebrate his birthday with his posse back in Houston, gotten suspended three games for kicking a courtside photographer and--most recently--told Brian Hill to get out of his face when the coach had the nerve to ask him to go into a game at Seattle.
