Steve Francis

Former NBA All-Star Steve Francis was born on February 21, 1977 in Silver Spring, MD. After attending the University of Maryland, the point guard was the second overall pick in 1999 NBA draft. “Stevie Franchise,” as he’s called, has played for the Houston Rockets, Orlando Magic, New York Knicks, and Beijing Ducks. Francis and ex-wife Shelby filed for divorce in June 2015, but the terms were not finalized until February 2017. The mother of his two children claimed he abused drugs. He was arrested in November 2016 in Houston and charged with DWI, possession of marijuana, and retaliation. He pled guilty to misdemeanor DWI. Francis struck a deal in a separate case in FL in which he burglarized a car and stole belongings from it. He previously faced sexual assault allegations in May 2010 by a Texas woman who was signed to his record label, Mazerati Record Label. His other business ventures include Steve Francis Gloal, eyewear, accessories, and apparel, as well as Steve Francis Foundation, which he created in memory of his mom who died of cancer in 1995.
