NBA superstar Kobe Bryant thrilled his fans during a six-day tour of Asia which ended in Chengdu on Sunday. It was the Los Angeles Lakers star's third summer visit to the region since 2006. Bryant offered tips and advice to basketball followers during a number of workshops and appearances in several major cities across Asia. The 30-year-old guard was in Hong Kong last Friday. He walked into a packed Southorn Stadium in Wan Chai, where enthusiastic fans chanted his name. Bryant watched a group of youngsters play in a brief game and then picked three players for a training session. They were Adam Xu, Chow Kin-wan and Lau Hoi-to. In fact, both Chow and Lau also took part in a workshop conducted by Bryant when he last visited Hong Kong in 2007. Xu said he was surprised to be chosen by Bryant and was really nervous to shoot in front of him. 'He is really nice, much nicer than I imagined. It's the first time I met him in person. My brain was almost a blank when he was teaching me,' he said. Lau said he had dreamed of another opportunity to conduct drills with the Most Valuable Player of the 2009 NBA finals. His dream came true last Friday. Lau is now as tall as Bryant but he said he has a long way to go. 'Although we are as tall as each other, he is much stronger than me. It felt like I was hitting a wall when he was guarding me during training. I think I must gain more weight and muscle,' he said. Chow received the biggest surprise from Bryant. Apart from teaching him various moves like the hook shot, the jump shot and the crossover, Bryant promised to play a one-on-one game with him during his next visit to the city. 'I was shocked when I heard this. I will try my best to practise what he taught me and improve my skills. I cannot wait to play him,' Chow said. Bryant also visited Manila, Singapore, Taipei and Shanghai during his Asian tour.
