On Wednesday, Jennings sent this tweet, which was later deleted: "Wait wait wait JR smith brother is in the NBA but @PoohJeter & @BBROWNLAU isn't. Call me hater but not Rollin!!!"

"Threaten? No. There's a way to threaten somebody, and that's not the way to publicly threaten somebody," Smith said Thursday before his team's game against the Houston Rockets. "It's not that serious. I go to L.A. in the summertime and see him all the time ... I don't know how it got this blow out of proportion.https://twitter.com/TheRealJRSmith/statuses/400845777687568384
