New York Knicks swingman, J.R. Smith, is no stranger to social media networks, and routinely takes to Twitter as a means of discussing NBA issues and personal matters. Smith also has a history of saying what he wants in front of an audience of 208,000+ on Twitter.
The most recent Twitter scandal (if that’s what we’re to make of it) involving Smith, was more of an indirect way of getting something off his chest than we’re used to seeing from Smith. One of Smith’s followers on Twitter, @T_Humphrey34 Tweeted the Knicks’ player with what appeared to be a slight towards the Denver Nuggets and coach, George Karl.
@therealjrsmith Crazy how different things can be when you play for a coach, team, and city who believes in you and has your back..

Now, I could be reading between the lines on this one, but the picture (also embedded above) Smith posted as a response is very clear. It shows J.R. as a Nugget on the left and then as a Knick on the right. He also used a hashtag on the term #2DifferentPeople #InTheSamePerson. Smith appears to believe that he was mishandled in Denver, and has finally found his niche in the Big Apple, as a New York Knickerbocker, under coach Mike Woodson, opposed to George Karl.
The Denver Post has also taken notice to this particular Twitter exchange, and you can get their take here.
The post J.R. Smith uses re-tweet as subtle jab towards Nuggets appeared first on Pass The Pill.
