J.R. Smith's sister and girlfriend reportedly got into another brouhaha in China. (Deadspin.com)

Someone get the embassy on the phone, we've got another international incident on our hands.

History has reportedly repeated itself just weeks after former NBA player J.R. Smith's sister got into a fight with fans in China during one of Smith's games back in early January.

Deadspin.com reports that this time Smith's sister and girlfriend were involved in another in-game melee while Smith continues to play for the Zhejiang Golden Bulls of the Chinese Basketball Association.
I can't speak for the state of Sino-American talocrural relations, but I can report that Smith's sister and girlfriend are once again implicated in a fight that broke out last night during a game between J.R.'s Zhejiang squad and the host Tianjin. According to Chinese news sources, conflict erupted after Tianjin fans heckled J.R. Smith as he went to the line late in the third quarter. After what I believe to be Thunderstix were thrown onto the court by a spectator, Smith's girlfriend got into a shoving match with Tianjin fans while his sister flipped the crowd the double-bird. 

Stephanie Smith claims on her Twitter that she didn't start the fight "this time," and we can understand her description of the incident being different from Chinese sources that describe her as "a ton of bricks." We invite her side of the story—and of the previous incident, if she wants to share. 

Smith signed a deal with Zhejiang that did not include an opt-out clause back in September during the lockout. In November, he suffered a knee injury and the club's general manager told the Chinese media that he was faking the injury.

Smith, 26, is a talented and troubled score-first guard who will be eligible for an NBA return upon the completion of the Chinese Basketball Association's regular season. He averaged 12.3 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.2 steals in 24.9 minutes per game for the Nuggets last year. He will be an unrestricted free agent.

The thing about the internet is that it allows dumb azz people like yourself to make racially insensitive remarks without any repercussions. You can get away with using racial epithets and say things you would never say to a person’s face for fear of getting the crap kick out of you. So go ahead be bold, brave, and anonymous. You really are showing a lot of courage in your anonymity.

Haha, I love it! Most of white america would just s t f u and sit the he ll down when surrounded by others of a different race but not black america. Heck no, the immortal James Brown said," to say it loud, I'm black and I'm proud!". Not that you should be proud of a loud-mouthed, ignorant fool but when it comes down to some azz kicking, you would want her on your team.

That post below me receives an 88? What is up with CBS? Also, why in the world would anyone think we care about what some trashy pig and her friend did in China? Because she is some D level NBA scrubs sister? Attention CBS Sports, we come here from ESPN TMZ DISNEY's awful website to read about sports. Please don't let the millions of homosexual HS students that follow Bill Simmons to fool you. we are out here and we want sports. Not tripe like this. I wish they got caned, or better yet, RE-EDUCATED.

I'm sure shes a P of S but the Chinese were probably glad to start a fight with her. Let's face it, they don't like us.

Got heckled by fans in an away game and she takes umbrage. Little minds with too much money.
