HoopsHype Washington rumors

August 9, 2010 Updates

After a small Internet furor developed over his claim to be D.C.'s best basketball product since Len Bias, Steve Francis was offered a chance to back off last week. He declined. "That's a true statement," Francis said on ESPN 980's John Thompson Show. "I mean, the numbers don't lie. I'm not trying to degrade those young guys, but as you know, a lot of work has to be put in for a person to be able to have that statement come out of their mouths. And I think at the time that I was interviewed, that's how I was feeling at the time." Washington Post
