THE SINGLE STRANGEST THING EVER

So I mentioned this in the comments under Seth's recap of today's game, but seriously...this is the weirdest story I've ever heard about an NBA player:

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba-ball-dont-lie/j-r-smith-chinese-team-fined-him-more-004858221.html

To sum it up:

1. While in China, JR Smith got a panda.

2. Allegedly, his team fined him for playing with it too much.

3. HE NAMED IT BRAD GARRETT.

4. Who is Brad Garrett, you might ask? He's the actor who played the brother on "Everybody Loves Raymond." Why did JR name his panda that? Because Brad Garrett is JR Smith's favorite actor.

So to sum up, I have nothing to add. There is literally nothing I can add to that to make it a stranger story. I don't know if I'm the only one who hadn't heard about this (or maybe I'm the ONLY one, I don't know), but I had to share it with you guys.
