One day LeBron James will surely have a statue in Miami or maybe even somewhere else.

Until then, he'll have to deal with incredibly elaborate sand sculptures. Not bad for a 28-year-old.

Nike, which sponsors James and pays him an estimated $15 million a year, surprised James with this masterpiece during his tour of the company's headquarters in Beaverton, Ore.

The sculpture depicts James (or an idealized version of James with a better hairline), holding the NBA Finals MVP Award as well as the Larry O'Brien NBA Championship Trophy. The sculpture rises above James' 6-foot-8 frame, so it's got to be at least 7 feet tall.

James included the sculpture in an Instagram video he filmed. His reaction to the artwork?
