This hasn’t been the best day for the New York Knicks organization from a press standpoint. The surprising series of events started earlier in the day when Metta World Peace announced his contract buyout. That early morning twitter announcement would be followed by a series of tweets from the NBA veterans’ brother, Daniel Artest who took direct aim at the organization.
Among other things Daniel pointed out the apparent dysfunction which has been plaguing the Knicks for some time. While this off court distraction could easily have been disregarded, the fact that the Knicks lost in yet another disappointing fashion to the Atlanta Hawks this evening didn’t help matters.
With tonights loss the Knicks now fall to a record of 21-35, as their underwhelming season continues to plunge in tragic fashion. Strangely enough their lopsided record wasn’t even the most intriguing storyline to come out earlier tonight. That honor goes to James Dolan, the Knicks owner himself.
