Alaska Airlines unveils Warriors star Kevin Durant plane for NBA Finals

OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant is flying into Oakland on the side of an Alaska Airlines plane! Well, not the real KD, but a huge photo of him.

The Boeing 737 features a 560-square foot image of Durant. "The basketball star's larger-than-life wingspan stretches 50 feet across both sides of the fuselage," said Alaska Airlines in a statement.

The plane will land at Oakland International Airport just in time for Thursday's tip off when the Warriors take on the Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
