Many in the sporting world were still getting their heads around Twitter when Metta World Peace’s brother Daniel Artest got into a nu-media sparring match with Trevor Ariza. Fast forward nearly 4 years later, and on the weekend World Peace and teammate Beno Udri are being bought out by the Knicks, Artest has been unloading on the former Tru Warier’s most recent employer, but credit where due — at least he’s not advocating the assassination of The Straight Shot’s frontman / wankmeister. From the Staten Island Advance’s Joe D’Amodio :
Johnny Giamella — the son of a New York City cop — took to Twitter and made threats to Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan (above), who oversees the operations of the Knicks and New York Rangers, in several posts, the police said.
In one tweet, Giamella, 19, allegedly wrote, “James Dolan, it’s officially time to die,”
Police said in another tweet he wrote, “Death to James Dolan.”
Also posted were pictures of Giamella holding a gun to the camera and a sharp metal object to his neck.
In another photo, a naked Giamella is seen holding a gun over his penis, according to a criminal complaint.
Giamella was charged harassment. A phone call to his residence went unanswered. The complaint says Dolan’s security chief noticed the postings and reported them to the police
