1. Metta World Fun!


Known for his rough-and-tumble defense, Metta World Peace was the New York's most efficient offensive option against Charlotte. He shot 7-for-13 from the field and scored 18 points. "World," as Clyde Frazier loves to call him, banged home a couple threes and put in four of five attempts at the rim. 
As New York's offense continues to search for its identity, it's encouraging to see that World Peace can come off the bench and produce. His shot selection can be a bit zany at times, but he has shot 45 percent from the field and a very good 39 percent from three. Part of New York's problem in the past has been a lack of productive "two-way" players, but World Peace looks to be exactly that through the first four games.
