4. Metta Fitting In

Metta World Peace played a solid 26 minutes, in which he demonstrated why he's going to be such a valuable part of the team's success this season. Peace had six rebounds and two steals in his time on the court, including one steal which he took coast to coast for a lay-in. 

Metta is engaged early as he seems to really be enjoying his new teammates and surroundings. The earlier the new Knicks addition find their comfort level and roles, the easier it will be for the team to get off to good start to the regular season.
