Brandon Jennings – like many other people – doesn’t think Chris Smith, the younger brother of J.R. Smith, belongs in the NBA. Jennings made the mistake of tweeting his opinion, which he quickly deleted. Someone showed J.R. Smith and now we have some good old fashion Twitter beef.

Smith also allegedly tweeted, “Might call some of my Number street homies an put #Detroit on smash for a min!#DeadSerious,” but that has also been deleted. (Does that mean he’s a “lil kid who pop at the mouth on twitter and then want to delete they tweets” too? Wonder if that is fine-worthy…)
While Jennings says it is “just basketball talk,” it will be interesting to see how Jennings and Smith interact when the Pistons and Knicks meet in Detroit on Tuesday night. Jennings can’t seem to avoid drama – he allegedly got punched in the face by a rapper at his own birthday party in September. [via ESPN]
