For some reason, the New York Knicks have given a roster spot to Chris Smith, J.R.'s brother and a player one executive told Yahoo Sports was "maybe the worst player in the history of the [NBA] summer league."
The fact Chris Smith still has an NBA job is a head-scratcher and not just for fans and media, but opposing players too. For instance, Brandon Jennings tweeted and deleted this on Wednesday:
"Wait wait wait JR smith brother is in the NBA but @PoohJeter & @BBROWNLAU isn't. Call me hater but not Rollin!!!"
But J.R. sniffed out the subtweet of his brother and had something to say:
Don't hype this it's not beef. It's just basketball talk. I know how twitter get!!!— BRANDON JENNINGS (@BrandonJennings) November 14, 2013
But J.R. Swish can smell a subtweet from a mile away:
Here we go sub tweeting again! I didn't hear nothing when @joshselby32 got in them pockets! Money on me all day everyday go get who u want!— JR Smith (@TheRealJRSmith) November 14, 2013
Relevant note: The Knicks and Pistons play this Tuesday.
