(CBS News) Last week, when Carmelo Anthony appeared at Madame Tussauds for the unveiling of his wax figure, the Knicks star was asked about LeBron James.

"I believe that my time is coming," Anthony said. "I'm a big believer in that, whether it's this year or next year. I truly believe that my time is coming."

While most sports writers assumed he was referring to getting his first NBA ring, Anthony may have actually been coveting something else - LeBron's very own balloon sculpture

Watch as BYU student Joel Zae spends (wastes?) an entire Saturday crafting this rubber replica of the Miami Heat star. It may not rival the likeness of Melo's wax figure but at least the inflated King James now has a ring to go along with his South Beach talents.
