J.R. Smith's Sister Choked A Woman During A Brawl In China Involving The Same Team That Beat Up Georgetown

Former Nuggets guard J.R. Smith is currently playing in China for the Zhejiang Golden Bulls, having been unable to escape his Chinese Basketball Association contract when the NBA lockout ended. Zhejiang faced the Bayi Rockets (you remember them as the Chinese military team who brawled with Georgetown) last night and after Smith drew contact without a foul call, his sister allegedly threw a bottle on the court, then went on a rampage—choking a woman and shoving an 80-year-old. (This is all according to the Chinese press, of course, but look at the photos above and you can see she wasn't happy.)


Video of the incident itself doesn't show much, but today's Chinese news broadcasts featured video from inside the Zhejiang bus after the game, during which angry Bayi fans appear to be holding their own Occupy movement, demanding an apology from the Smith family. The team's departure was held up for 45 minutes before things finally settled down.


Smith went for 34, eight, and eight by the way.
