Metta World Peace let the world know on Twitter today that his agent was working on a buyout from the Knicks. He has nothing but love for his hometown of New York and Knicks fans in general, but remained largely mum about the reasons he’s decided to seek a buyout. His brother, Daniel Artest, wasn’t so covert. Daniel Artest has been lobbing grenades at the Knicks organization on his own Twitter account, calling out coach Mike Woodson, the Knicks PR department, and the organization as a whole secure in the knowledge his brother is done in New York’s blue and orange.

First, here’s Metta:

Now here are some of Daniel Artest’s more inflammatory tweets, which have since been deleted, but which thankfully captured with a screenshot.

There were more including one where Daniel — who is a must follow at this point because he shoots straight from the hip — claims to have asked for $15K from the Knicks PR department to stop tweeting about the Knicks:

Here are a few more, and the agreement from some — including New York Daily News scribe and noted thorn in the side of Knicks’ management, Frank Isola — for what Metta’s brother was spitting earlier today:

Daniel Artest is cracking us up this morning, and we hope Metta finds a solid team to join that can make the most out of what he has left in the tank.

Is Daniel Artest right?
