NBA stars, Shaquille O'Neal, Baron Davis and Jose Calderon, have continued their tour around China. Davis and Calderon went to Hunan province, while O'Neal went to the famous Shaolin Temple in central China's Henan province.

O'Neal had said it was a dream for him to learn some Chinese Kungfu, and now it's been realized. It wasn't easy for the 2.15-meter and 147-kilo man to get all the Wushu moves, but O'Neal seemed earnest in his efforts. The new Cleveland Cavalier's Snake boxing showed a promising future in martial arts.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers' Baron Davis and Jose Calderon from the Toronto Raptors went to Changsha, central China's Hunan province. Davis gave some signed gloves to the fans, and was busy filming what he'd seen in China with a DV camera.

The two stars also went to Hunan University to greet students. They watched China's traditional lion dance, and put on the finish touches to the lions' eyes, a Chinese custom meaning they are very important guests. They'll next fly to Shanghai, the last stop of their Chinese tour.
