Adding a label to a Point on map in ArcGIS

I have static points on a map. I use this code to draw them:

point = GeometryEngine.project(longitude, latitude, mapSR); 
pointGraphic = new Graphic(point, symbol);

The point is drawed on the map.

Now I want to add a label to it - show under the drawn point it's longitude and latitude. I can do it using text adding, but then when I resize the map, the text placement changes. I want to put it like a label - let's say on the bottom right from the point. I want it to be sensitive for zooming, and binded to the Point.

I read about dinamic labels, but it seems very complex for such a simple request.

How can I do this?

Individual graphics don't have labels, but you can create two graphics with the same geometry. Use your current symbol for one of them. For the other graphic, use a TextSymbol, calling setOffsetX(float) and setOffsetY(float) to place it the way you want.
