Miami Heat superstar LeBron James is larger than life, and a new statue created by a Fort Lauderdale-based company brings new meaning to the phrase.
Melissa Perlman of Primetime Amusements said the statue took three weeks to build, and it was hand-sculpted, drawn and painted.
The 18-foot statue weighs 250 pounds and is made entirely of foam. The 6-foot, 8-inch sculpture also weighs 250 pounds.
Primetime Amusements is working on a Dwyane Wade statue now, and Chris Bosh is next. That would create the “really” big three.
There’s still no word on where the monoliths will be on display.
“Hopefully, they end up with a players charity or an NBA charity,” said Pearlman.
They should all be ready by All-Star weekend, which is just about two weeks away.
