The Twitter battle between Darrelle Revis and J.R. Smith

Cornerback Darrelle Revis of the New York Jets might be on the decline but NBA star J.R. Smith took unnecessary shots at him on Twitter.

It’s no secret that cornerback Darrelle Revis of the New York Jets has started off the season on a poor note. He’s gotten burned twice now in Weeks 1 and 2 when given the assignment of the No. 1 receiving threat of his opponent.

Of course, on Thursday Night Football, Revis was once again burned on defense and well, even on Twitter. It made many fans and celebrities roast him on Twitter but none took it to the next level like NBA star J.R. Smith. Here’s what transpired between the two via Twitter:

Even though Smith just won an NBA championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers, it remains to be seen if his career is even worthy of the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame. Sure, he won a championship ring and all but he needs to know his place.

At the end of the day, Revis is undoubtedly a future Pro Football Hall of Fame member and also won a Super Bowl championship. While it came thanks to his tenure with the New England Patriots, he’s still going to be enshrined in Canton, Ohio when his time comes.

It’s great to see Revis put an end to their Twitter battle considering the two have met and hung out before.

Smith more than likely got caught up in the moment after Revis was burned on that huge touchdown pass by the Bills.

Everything considered, Revis took the high road and well, will do his best to bounce back as he prepares to face the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3 action on the road.

It’ll be another test for Revis but make no mistake about it, he’ll be just fine as the season progresses.

While some may think Revis has lost a step as an elite cornerback in the NFL, he knows exactly how to get through these early obstacles and return to his usual efficient self.

Overall, looks like this Twitter battle is over between Revis and Smith so everyone can move on and focus on the task at hand. It’s still a long NFL season ahead and plenty of time for Revis to silence his critics once and for all as he continues on his path towards greatness.
