07:15 AM ET 09.24 | Off the court, Metta World Peace has returned to where it all began: New York City. On the court, World Peace envisions a greater offensive role in his first season in New York. Whether or not he's starting -- he said he's fine with either -- he's ready to prove that his statistical decreases since 2009 are not a sign of wear and tear. ... [Said World Peace:] "The year I got to LA, I was averaging 11 points. I won a championship, which I was happy about. And the next year, I was averaging (more than eight) and then (more than) 12. I was playing with a great team and I deferred and sacrificed. "I'm still going to defer and sacrifice, but I think I might have more of a breakout season. People forgot that before I got to L.A., I was a 20-point scorer a night. I'll remind people," he said, smiling.

MWP is playing for the only New York team. No wonder he is feeling inspired.

He just needs to make sure he brings the toughness and aggression (under control) that the Knicks need.

I bet he melts down and beats up a car in the MSG garage.

I don't know how he is going to breakout when they have 3 players already that requires the ball in their hands?

You Already Escaped From LA, Bro.

Forget it World Peace. With Melo around everyone else has to be mediocre for the whole thing to work.

He does know that at 33, the only thing that can "break out" is his belly from his shorts, right?
