J.R. Smith, Kris Humphries Twitter Confrontation Ends In Knockout Win For Knicks Guard (TWEETS)

If J.R. Smith's final shot attempt had been as on target as this postgame tweet then the New York Knicks might have beaten the Brooklyn Nets on Monday. But Smith's potential game-tying three-point shot banked off the backboard and clanged off the rim in the final seconds, allowing the Nets to escape Madison Square Garden with an 88-85 win.

Not long after the final buzzer sounded, Kris Humprhries fired off a victory tweet.

More than a thousand people re-tweeted this message and at least one player on the Knicks noticed: Smith. The Knicks' mercurial shooting guard decided to shoot back at the current Brooklyn Nets power forward and former Mr. Kardashian.

Although Kanye West did perform at MSG last month as part of the 12-12-12 benefit concert, it seems a safe bet that Smith was referring to the fact that the rapper also impregnated Humphries' ex. On Dec. 31, Kim announced that she and Kanye were expecting.

Ouch.

Even in victory, Humphries still ended up losing. Smith's tweet got more than 40,000 re-tweets over the next few hours and more than 15,000 favorites. This isn't the first time that Humphries has taken a postgame jab at an opponent on Twitter but it may very well be his last.
