Stephen Curry Scores Wax Figure in Madame Tussauds San Francisco for 2016

Madame Tussauds announces figure of Warriors point guard to honor
accomplishments in the 2015 NBA championship season

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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
