Ohhhhh, J.R. Always finding trouble. Here's the news:
J.R. Smith fined $25K for directing hostile & inappropriate language to another player via Twitter account, in violation of NBA rules.— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) November 15, 2013
And here's the history. Brandon Jennings tweeted (and then deleted) some legitimate but perhaps uncouth comments about the silliness of Chris Smith being in the NBA. J.R. took exception, and tweeted some things that sounded vaguely threatening. And that'll cost him an amount that would cripple your or me, but probably doesn't matter that much to him. Oh well. Way to stick up for family, J.R. Way to still be on the Knicks, Chris.
