If you were sitting in an airport today, starring out the window waiting for your boarding zone to be called and thought you were seeing an image of Kevin Durant on the side of an airplane, it’s OK. You haven’t been watching too much basketball, it actually is Kevin Durant.
The image of the former Longhorn star, holding his arms, out is gracing the side of an Alaskan Airlines plane as the Golden State Warriors prepare to host the Cleveland Cavaliers for Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals.
If you’re flying @AlaskaAir out of Oakland International Airport today, you might be on the @KDTrey5 plane that was unveiled today. The #Warriors star & @richkleiman teamed up with the airline to support youth and education programs in the San Francisco Bay Area. #NBAFinals #NBA pic.twitter.com/qndV4e7FeSAdvertisement

The photo has Durant’s wingspan reaching more than 50 feet on both sides of the plane. The NBA Superstar, and No. 1 on Hookem.com’s active Texas Exes list, reportedly is an adviser to Alaska Airlines CEO Brad Tilden in regards to programs that support at-risk youths in the California Bay Area.
