Basketball fans in Hong Kong will not have to wait until the autumn to get a fix of their NBA stars. Two of them are coming to Hong Kong this summer. Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant (pictured) along with this year's rookie of the year, Chris Paul, from the New Orleans Hornets, will be in town for a NBA Celebrity jam on August 12 at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium, where the two are likely to give an exhibition of some moves, slam a few dunks and dazzle with a little slick dribbling.

For cheesecake factor, the Orlando Magic's dance team will join them on the visit. No details are available yet on how the public can acquire tickets to the event but it is organised by NBA Hong Kong.
