The beef started when Jennings tweeted to say how he couldn’t believe JR’s little brother Chris was on an NBA roster while two other worthy players weren’t. JR responded to Jennings in a few tweets. You can read it all here.
This wasn’t the first time Smith got in trouble with the league for his Twitter actions; last year he was fined for posting a photo of a girl’s huge butt on Twitter. Smith did, however, manage to avoid punishment for asking a girl if she was “trying to get the pipe.”
“I’m always in trouble with Twitter,” Smith said. “I don’t know what it is. I’m trying to shake it.”
That’s only a small taste of the problems Smith has faced. Woodson, who reportedly became fed up with Smith last season, met with Smith and told the player that eventually no team will want to deal with him if he keeps it up.
Here’s what Woodson told ESPN New York 98.7 FM’s “The Stephen A. Smith and Ryan Ruocco Show” that he said to Smith.
“You can’t keep putting yourself in that position. It’s going to come a time when you keep doing it (and) eventually no team is going to want to deal with you. You got to learn from it. Those are the things where I’m trying to get this young man to do.”
Good thing the Knicks didn’t just sign Smith to a 4-year contract extension over the summer. Oh wait.
