Remember when it was reported that Stephon Marbury, fresh off leading the Beijing Ducks to their first-ever Chinese Basketball Association championship, would be forever immortalized with his own bronze statue in China? Well, Sunday was the day that statue was officially unveiled outside the MasterCard Center in Beijing.

There to celebrate the occasion with Marbury were his family, teammates and, for some reason, Dennis Rodman, who gave the statue’s dedication speech. Marbury shared on Twitter some photos and thoughts from the ceremony, including inventing the hashtag “#statuelife” and dubbing it “a proud day in world history” for the Marbury family.

Here are more photos from the event:
