PHOTOS: Kevin Durant through the years

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.

The photo has Durant’s wingspan reaching more than 50 feet on both sides of the plane. The NBA Superstar, and No. 1 on’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.
