SAN FRANCISCO -– Madame Tussauds San Francisco will celebrate the achievements of Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry with a dynamic wax figure made in his likeness.
The figure depicts Curry in a dribbling position.
Curry spent hours with Madame Tussauds artists who took over 250 measurements to match everything from hair and eye color, to handprints. Tasked with holding an athletic pose as the artists took reference photos, Curry’s agent joked that the basketball star would have difficulty training the next day.
"We are thrilled to offer sports fans and visitors to San Francisco an opportunity to see one of the Bay Area's most beloved sports heroes," said Madame Tussauds General Manager, Chris Connors. "When Stephen Curry's figure arrives, every fan in the Bay Area can come take a selfie with Stephen and hang out with him every day!"
Considered one of the best shooters in the NBA, Curry is in his sixth season with the Warriors since his selection in the first round of the 2009 NBA draft. A two-time NBA All-Star, he led his team to the NBA championships in 2015. His performance throughout the season earned him the 2015 NBA MVP, as well as Hardest to Guard and best Clutch Performer in the NBPA Awards.
A sitting video is available to watch on YouTube. Curry’s figure is planned to launch in the first quarter of 2016. To track real-time updates on the launch, follow Madame Tussauds San Francisco on social media: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
