Details are still sketchy, but it appears that Stephanie Smith, the sister of former Nugget, JR Smith allegedly choked a woman and shoved an 80-year old man during Smith’s game. Jr’s team, the Zhejiang Golden Bulls,were playing against the Bayi Rockets. JR was fouled but didn’t get the call, his sister became upset and threw a bottle on the court.
From there, things are unclear but photos show his sister in some sort of altercation with a woman in the stands. Keep in mind, the team that was playing is the same team that had a brawl last summer with the Georgetown basketball team. (That could just be an interesting coincidence or a factor)
A few upset Bayi fans also interfered with Smith’s team ability to depart following the incident, demanding an apology from the Smith family. Stephanie tweeted shortly after.
WHOA, I guess she felt she had to defend herself.
