If J.R. Smith was already thinking about deleting his Twitter account last night, then he's really thinking about it right now. That's because Smith was just fined $25,000 by the NBA for using "hostile and inappropriate language" during his Twitter beef with Brandon Jennings the other night. The tweet that appears to have done him in is the one that featured Smith tweeting, "Might call some of my Number street homies an put #Detroit on smash for a min! #DeadSerious."
Regardless of which tweet got Smith into trouble, though, he's now going to have to pay $25K for tweeting. It's the second Twitter-related fine that he has received from the NBA (who could forget about this one?), and he is now just the second NBA player ever to be fined twice for misbehaving on Twitter (Amar'e Stoudemire is the other one). He's also the second NBA player to get fined because of Twitter this week with Matt Barnes being the other.
So far, no response from J.R. But keep a close eye on his Twitter. Because unless he does decide to delete it tonight, we're sure he'll address the fine at some point in his own crazy J.R. Smith kind of way.
