07:27 AM ET 11.15 | J.R. Smith may just have found himself in some hot water with the league. [Smith] could face discipline from the NBA if the league deems he threatened Pistons guard Brandon Jennings on Twitter. Smith took exception to Jennings' tweet questioning whether his brother, Chris Smith, belonged in the NBA. Jennings tweeted, "Wait wait wait JR Smith brother in the NBA but @POOHJETER & @BBROWNLAU isn't. Call me hater but not Rollin!!!" Jennings, who eventually removed that tweet, was referring to Pooh Jeter and Bobby Brown. J.R. defended Chris and wrote he has "no respect" for "lil kids who pop at the mouth on twitter" and then "delete their tweets." Moments later, Smith tweeted, "Might call some of my Number street homies an put #Detroit on smash for a min! #DeadSerious." The NBA was looking into the matter.

First off, these guys barely speak English. Good luck proving this was a threat in a court of law. NOBODY EVEN KNOWS WHAT THEY WROTE!

JR Smith **** dude. You are an idiot, and don't need to prove that over and over again. Now you gonna send in your wussy hit squad on me??

No one ever said JR was the sharpest knife in the draw. Somethings don't require following up, but the ones that are #TRUE always do. Something to think about JR.

Indeed. Javaris Crittendon or someone equally gangster would've carried out the hit himself.
