Stephen Curry, LeBron James become emojis just in time for their Christmas showdown

Just in case you need new ways to taunt Cavs fans, SportsManias has a Steph Curry emoji for you to deploy.

With the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers playing each other for the first time since the 2015 NBA Finals on Christmas Day, social media is expected to be ablaze with celebrations and a little trash talk.

Golden State of Mind (@UnstoppableBaby) has already been going at it with Fear The Sword (@FearTheSword) this week on Twitter in anticipation of the big game and we're going to be taking it to the next level on Christmas Day with a little wager that will be unveiled on the Golden State of Mindcast later.

To support your social media exploits, SportsManias has given us a Stephen Curry emoji.

SportsManias dropped us a little bit of background about the emojis and what they do generally in a press release.

Today, SportsManias unveiled its Christmas Day emojis of Steph and LeBron, with each animation featuring the player's full-body motion reflecting their personality and signature moves. Additional pro basketball stars like Kobe, Blake and Harden will be released throughout the holiday season. These basketball emojis follow the success of SportsManias' animated pro and college football emojis, which were released last month for Thanksgiving and feature one emoji for each professional team and an assortment of college football legends.

In addition to the availability of these basketball emojis, by the end of the year the updated SportsManias app will also launch its fantasy basketball feature, to make following your fantasy team easy and convenient, with all the latest news on your team's players updated in real-time, all in one place. The fantasy basketball feature will work in the same way as the app's fantasy football feature, serving as the ultimate fantasy tool to help fans make smarter lineup decisions. Fantasy players can seamlessly import their fantasy rosters from ESPN, CBS and Yahoo and receive the latest news on all their players from the beat writers with inside access covering them.

You can download the SportsManias app at their website to access all of their emojis.
