Metta World Peace has been a voice of reason – somewhat – during the Knicks’ struggles. He said playing for Zen Master Phil Jackson with the Lakers taught him not to overreact.

“I played for Phil, so I’m used to calm,” World Peace said. “Concerns are not my strong point. Solutions are my strong point. Staying in the moment is a strong point. I’m always trying to find solutions.”
