After just one game with the New York Knicks, Metta World Peace is already making a good impression with fans.

The 33-year-old forward, who was born and raised in New York City and went to college at St. John's, rode the Subway to the Knicks' season opener against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday. He took the F Train from the 21 St.-Queensbridge stop to the 34 St.-Herald Square stop.

And once Metta World Peace exited the subway to walk to Madison Square Garden, the crowd around him grew rapidly.

World Peace enjoyed the experience and said he would consider taking the subway again.

"Ya'll know it's easier to travel on the train. [Mayor Michael] Bloomberg has too many rules on the street," he told reporters. "Can't even make a right turn."
