Twitter War Erupts Between NBA Players Brandon Jennings, Chris Smith and JR Smith
You would think Brandon Jennings would have learned about popping off at the mouth after being punched in the face by Compton rapper Game earlier this year, but we guess not. The NBA star has been keeping busy making new enemies, this time by dissing JR Smith’s brother, New York Knicks hooper Chris Smith.
Jennings just retweeted a comment from an NBA fan slamming Chris, and arguing that the baller didn’t deserve a spot in the league. He deleted that tweet, then tried to give JR Smith some love before throwing another subtle shot at his brother.
“No beef at all. I respect JR Smith’s game, but I feel my homies should be in the league that’s all. That’s how ‘I’ feel. That’s all.”
Those words didn’t sit well with the Smith brothers who immediately responded on Twitter.
“I’m not about no kid games … #Facts,” Chris tweeted. “I work hard everyday to play this game I love. Thank you for those who support me and God bless those who don’t.”
Chris’ brother wasn’t as thoughtful with his word choice.
“No respect for these lil kids who pop at the mouth on Twitter and then want to delete they tweets! #GrowUp! #ManUp! @TheOnlyCSmith0 #Facts!” the star tweeted, later threatening, “Might call some of my Number street homies and put #Detroit on smash for a min! #DeadSerious.”
For those of you wondering, Jennings and his Detroit Pistons are set to take on the Knicks next Tuesday night in Detroit. That’s probably a game you’ll want to watch.
