Since LeBron James announced his shock decision to 'return home' to Cleveland, the four-time NBA MVP has spent very little time in the United States.
Not long after jetting out to be in attendance for the final of the 2014 FIFA World Cup out in Brazil, James headed out with his entourage to begin his now annual tour of Asia to spread both his, and the NBA's, brand to a global audience.
As well as posing for photos and discussing the game he loves with what is an ever-increasing fanbase, LeBron James has been taking part in basketball clinics in front of packed out arenas.
A case in point being a recent trip to Hong Kong as part of his ninth successive tour of the Asian continent under the Nike Rise banner.
LeBron was charged with demonstrating a skills drill to an avid audience, and while he began slowly- dribbling in and out of cones in a nonchalant fashion - the former Miami Heat superstar clearly couldn't help himself from laying down one of his famous dunks to leave the crowd in awe.
The added smoke special effects firing out of the backboard certainly helped make the dunk look even more impressive, but LeBron James let himself hang off the rim for that extra few seconds just to let the fans get that winning photo.
The face of the NBA
LeBron James remains the face of the NBA. If people were not already aware of the fact, the fallout from his recent free agency switch to the Cavaliers has only reinforced that fact.
He was recently announced the most popular male athlete in the United States and his face, along with the likes of Kobe Bryant and GOAT Michael Jordan, are known around the globe.
A disappointing 2013-14
Tours such as the one James is currently undertaking only serve to further enhance his stature as the game's best, but he will be hoping to rectify what was ultimately a disappointing 2013-14 NBA season when he returns to the US later this month.
LeBron lost out to Kevin Durant in the race for the league's MVP award, and the Miami Heat's defeat in the 2014 NBA Finals to the San Antonio Spurs was a bitter pill to swallow, with many suggesting this failure played a big part in LeBron's decision to leave the South Florida franchise.
