Default Steve Francis cold as ice

Betcha Vancouver looks pretty good to him now. lol

The NBA doesn't have much use for former All-Star Steve Francis(notes) these days, so he's flown off to China to work for the Beijing Ducks, same as former All-Stars/tiny shooting guards Allen Iverson(notes) (to Turkey, though) and Stephon Marbury(notes) (to China, definitely) have done. And in his first game with the Ducks, yeah, Steve kind of took to the court in his first game wearing an ice pack on his ankle.

The long list of players not being ready to hop into pro basketball games is long, and semi-legendary.

There's former Pacer Bob Netolicky, who once pulled away his sweats at the scorer's table to see a jock strap and little else where basketball shorts were supposed to be. There's Rod Strickland, who checked into a game wearing his Wizards shorts backwards. There's Stephen Jackson(notes), who Lang Whitaker once witnessed eating popcorn before a game as a ballboy (a kid, mind you) wondered aloud as to how a professional ballplayer could be so flighty with what he puts into his body. And then there's Rod Strickland, whose pregame (as in, seconds before the game) meal of a hot dog was then thrown up onto the court a few minutes later. The list is mostly Rod Strickland.
