Ron Artest’s Brother Beefs With Trevor Ariza

A few weeks ago, Ron Artest had a little Twitter spat with Phil Jackson. This time it’s Daniel Artest, Ron’s brother, sparking up Twitter beef. Kevin Ding has the full breakdown: “I was in San Antonio two months ago and was asked unsolicited by Trevor Ariza via Twitter to “name ‘em” after I’d made a comment from my KevinDing Twitter account that Ron Artest was better than Ariza ‘in so many ways.’ (My response: Hey, Trev. My opinion? At this pt in your career, Ron has edges in 1-on-1 D, team D, rebounding, passing, some aspects of shooting.) Ariza spoke up Thursday night via Twitter again when Daniel Artest, Ron’s brother, had Tweeted strong comments about Ron Artest being a better player than Ariza, whom the Lakers let go after last season and replaced with Artest. You can check their respective Twitter timelines (Daniel Artest’s and Ariza’s) for the full conversation, but Ariza was annoyed in the same way as two months ago with me at ongoing comparisons between the players. This, however, was a little personal — with one of the first, strong statements Ariza wrote to Daniel Artest was: “what r u doing with ur life.”

    We are in the age of Twitter beefs and Twitter diss. We are definitely in the Age of Ignorance…

    Guess getting to the pinnacle of sports, and experiencing the euphoria of an NBA Championship, can only be rivalled by the adrenaline of a twitter debate.
    Miss the good old days when athletes turned to cocaine for post-playing highs.
    Or gambling (that one’s for you, MJ)

    Very unprofessional by Ariza.

    This is just dumb. I still think Lakers should have kept Ariza. If Lakers don’t repeat, blame it on Ron like he said. Lakers could have even got both if they got rid off someone else.

    Yesse THAT was dumb.

    Rockets are cringing right now. Every NBA player realizes that the minimum salary for the league they play in is 10 times the average salary, for playing a sport. It’s a dream life for them..But you will never see the true superstars actually admit it. Ariza is really immature and this can be referenced to the punch he threw at DeRozan after his turnover. He will never truly be a superstar because of his attitude..
