Joe Johnson will be traded to the Nets.

The Brooklyn Nets and Atlanta Hawks have agreed to terms on a deal that will bring Joe Johnson to New York, sources told ESPN.com. The deal is contingent on Deron Williams agreeing to stay with the Nets. The Hawks, according to sources, would get Anthony Morrow; Jordan Farmar, Jordan Williams, Johan Petro, DeShawn Stevenson (via sign-and-trade) and the Rockets' 2013 lottery protected first round pick. The Nets, in addition to Johnson, retain full $5 million mid-level exception (to sign Bosnian forward Mirza Teletovic) and $1.95 million bi-annual exception to keep adding to their roster. Brooklyn would also keep MarShon Brooks and free agent Gerald Green, while convincing Atlanta to take a first-round pick (via Houston), in this deal, sources said. http://espn.go.com/new-york/nba/story/_/id/8124182/brooklyn-nets-land-joe-johnson-trade-atlanta-hawks-sources-say ALSO: HA HA HA Dwight Howard HA HA HA.

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.

Celtics looking to deal point guard Rondo for Hornets star Paul

When ESPN.com reported on Tuesday that the Celtics would be willing to trade point guard Rajon Rondo for the right player, it surprised anyone who had seen the sixth-year player's mastery of the team's system in recent years. But according to numerous sources with knowledge of the situation, Boston general manager Danny Ainge is highly motivated to land an even better point guard than the one who led the Celtics to a championship in 2008 and an average of 58.5 wins in the last four seasons: New Orleans' Chris Paul. Ainge, the sources say, has recently discussed trading Rondo in a deal that nets Paul, but the Hornets don't appear interested in a two-team deal in which Rondo -- who has four years worth approximately $46 million left on his contract -- and Paul would switch places. So Ainge has been on the prowl for a third team that could provide the sort of young pieces Hornets general manager Dell Demps would covet as part of his possible rebuilding plan. The more pressing question, of course, is whether Paul, who can become a free agent after this season, would consider signing an extension with Boston. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2011/writers/sam_amick/11/29/chris.paul.celtics/index.html

What to watch during the NBA lockout? Feline agility competitions!

It is a sport in which the contestants sometimes lie down in the middle of the field, unmotivated and bemused. Feline agility competitions, in which cats run through a miniature obstacle course full of hurdles and tunnels, have become fixtures on the cat show scene. Modeled after canine agility competitions, the tournaments feature a ring in which cat owners — some of whom have trained their pets from kittenhood — brandish a feather or sparkly wand to try to coax a cat to climb stairs, weave around poles and leap through hoops in as little time as possible. Some cats tear through the course in seconds. Others make it clear to the eager onlookers that they could not care less. "You have to get the cat to focus on the toy," said Anthony Hutcherson, who raises Bengal cats in Port Tobacco, Md., and whose oldest cat, Justin, has run the course in nine seconds. "Cats will pretty much chase a feather on a string anywhere." http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/19/sports/in-feline-agility-competitions-the-biggest-obstacle-can-be-the-cat.html?gwh=0B4F97FD3C09861D62CCF389DD610E41

Das "schönste Säugetier der Erde": Newborn red panda twins at Berlin's Tierpark Zoo

Als Frederic Cuvier 1825 erstmalig den Kleinen Panda (Ailurus fulgens) wissenschaftlich beschrieb, bezeichnete er ihn als das "schönste Säugetier der Erde". Noch heute teilen viele Berliner seine Meinung und so zählt das Panda-Pärchen "Isabell" und "Quincy" zu den Besucherlieblingen im Tierpark Berlin. Dort erblickten am 22. Juni 2011 die beiden Jungtiere "Kit" und "Kitty" das Licht der Welt. Während sie die ersten 80 Tage zurückgezogen in ihrer Wurfhöhle verbrachten, beginnen die Zwillinge nun allmählich ihre Umwelt zu erkunden und wagen bereits erste Ausflüge auf die Bäume ihres natürlich gestalteten Geheges. Der Kleine Panda oder Katzenbär wird wegen seines fuchsroten Pelzes auch Roter Panda oder Feuerfuchs genannt. Er lebt im Rhododendron- und Bambusdickicht an den Südhängen des Himalayas sowie in den Bergwäldern im Südwesten Chinas. Dort ernährt er sich fast ausschließlich von Pflanzen, am liebsten von jungen Bambussprossen. Da sein natürlicher Lebensraum immer kleiner wird, gilt sein Bestand inzwischen als gefährdet. Der Tierpark Berlin unterstützt daher das WWF-Projekt zum Schutze des Kleinen Pandas im östlichen Himalaya und beteiligt sich mit seiner erfolgreichen Zucht am Europäischen Erhaltungszuchtprogramm, das vom Zoo Rotterdam koordiniert wird. Tierpark-Besucher, die "Kit" und "Kitty" bei ihren ersten Kletterversuchen beobachten möchten, sollten jedoch ein wenig Glück und Geduld mitbringen, da die Jungtiere zunächst nur zeitweise die sichere Höhle verlassen. http://www.tierpark-berlin.de/tierpark/veranstaltungen/veranstaltungs-news/news/article/zwillingsgeburt-beim-schoensten-saeugetier-der-erde-im-tierpark-berlin.html

Where To Drive Drunk In Detroit

If you drive blottoed, you down’t want to land in the court of Judge Kimberly Small in Bloomfield Hills. Here, you are pretty sure to end up in the slammer, even for a first offense. In other areas, you must be a repeat offender to do time. And in Detroit, the stays are short, and the fines are affordable. If you are a low income drinker, Judge Marylin Atkins in Detroit will give you a discount. See, downtown Detroit isn’t all that bad. And some enterprising soul really should put that information into the navigation system. http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2011/07/where-to-drive-drunk-in-detroit/

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
