Groaning about Steve Francis is nothing new to Orlando Magic fans.  But when Steve Francis picks his nose on live TV, those groans reach a new level.

A Sun Sports camera caught Steve Francis picking his nose while watching the Magic vs. Wizards at Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. This slow-motion video I found on YouTube shows it definitely was a pick -- (not a scratch!) -- by Steve Francis, who played  in 124 games for the Magic from 2004-2006.

My apologies in advance for the Sunday-morning gross-out, but when a three-time NBA all-star buries his finger up a nostril on live TV, we just can't let it pass.

As one observer pointed out: "That's more work than he put in wearing a Magic uniform."

Let's just hope Steve Francis abides by the wise words a preacher once told me -- "You can pick your friends, you can pick your nose, but you can't wipe your friends on the couch."

Roll the video.
