Stephen Curry Donning Motion Capture Suit

2K had previously revealed that the NBA 2K16 will have three cover stars for the Standard Edition of the game, that includes James Harden, Anthony Davis and Stephen Curry.

A recent post on the official Facebook revealed some cool videos of Curry wearing the motion capture suit and engaged in action – showing he can easily dribble two basketballs at the same time, a pregame ritual and his signature raise and point to sky.

The post also has a vine video, which shows that Ayesha Curry -- wife of Stephen Curry -- too has the skills. 


Thanks Stephen Curry for coming & getting that shot right for #NBA2K16 8 days after winning a title. Videos in coming weeks!
