Patty Mills has finally been released from his CBA contract after being released by the Xinjiang Flying Tigers for 'supposedly' faking an injury. He is hopeful to get back in the NBA, with teams such as the Lakers possibly interested in him. Seeing as Portland still owns his rights, do we keep him or trade him? His speed and shooting could prove valuable to any team. What do you all think?

Red panda becomes surprise house guest in China

The red panda turned up at the home of a Chinese family in the suburbs of Leshan, a city located in southwest China's Sichuan Province, last week. "We were having a meal outside our home and saw it climbing down the slope toward us. We approached it slowly, leaving the door of our house open, and then the red panda suddenly rushed inside," said the homeowner.

NYT: Stephon Marbury Finding Success and Serenity in China

Marbury is in a great space: his own driver, an apartment in Beijing in the equivalent of the Wall Street district and a team that could help him win his first pro basketball championship. "I never thought in my life that I’d end up going to China and wanting to spend the rest of my life here," he said. Marbury also writes a weekly newspaper column in China Daily.

"It’s beautiful when you can tell your own story," he said. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/05/sports/basketball/stephon-marbury-finding-success-and-serenity-in-china.html?pagewanted=print

J.R. Smith's time in China isn't going so well

It's OK, you can crash at my place edit: there's a piece on J.R. and his injury on Chinese TV right now. I can't understand a word of it, but he looked pissed, he needs to shave, and his team's jerseys are hideous. It's mostly stock footage of him doing ab exercises.

They only look like baby pandas.

These little bundles of joy are actually chow chow dogs that have been dyed black-and-white to look like pandas. Dyeing pets has been a trend in pet pampering for quite some time. At last summer's Pets Show Taipei, there was a fierce dog-dyeing competition. But dyeing your pets to look like other wild animals is a more recent development. http://www.globalpost.com/dispatches/globalpost-blogs/the-rice-bowl/china-panda-pet-culture-dog-tiger-economy
