LeBron James put on a demonstration of his basketball skills in Hong Kong, the midway stop on his tour through China.

The Cleveland Cavaliers star helped run some local fans through basketball drills in the former British colony on Wednesday. And then he showed off with a few moves of his own, including a dunk that, with the help of some special effects, was accentuated by two jets of smoke from behind the backboard.

The move drew huge cheers from the 1,500 fans packed into the court in Kowloon.

Earlier in the day, James made an appearance at a store that was mobbed by hundreds of fans.

James kicked off his Nike-sponsored five-day trip on Monday with a visit to Beijing. He is travelling to Taiwan on Thursday and Friday.
