Derrick Rose has already had a major impact since his return to the Knicks, both on and off the court.

Through three games, the Knicks are outscoring their opponents by 42 points when Rose shares the court with rookie Immanuel Quickley, per NBA.com.

Fellow rookie Obi Toppin said Rose has helped him out, as well.

"I feel like because he is who he is on the court, he has that fire, he has that drive and he wants to help all of us, like me and Quick especially, us being the rookies, he's helping us every chance he can on the court. When he's on the court, we know what we have to do to be successful."

But more notably, Rose makes everyone around him better, according to Toppin.

"Derrick's a great guy. We talk every single day, and even when we're on the court and in the fire, he's talking to me, helping me every step of the way... He's not only going to make himself look good but he's going to help everybody on his team look good," he said.

Rose and Co. will see the floor against the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night at 7:30 p.m.
