Kevin Durant had a good day yesterday, and that's not just because the Golden State Warriors won the first game of the NBA Finals. The basketball megastar will now find his likeness on something that's usually reserved for Norwegian historical figures or Emirati Sheikhs.

Alaska rolled out a Boeing 737 with a massive picture of Durant emblazoned on the side of the aircraft's fuselage.

The 737-900ER is covered in 560 square feet of Durant decals. His wingspan, which as a human is already quite large, measures 50 feet on the aircraft itself.

Durant partnered with Alaska last year to help promote programs that support at risk youth in the Bay Area.

The aircraft was flown to Oakland (OAK) for Game 1 of the NBA Finals. It's registered N280AK and was delivered to Alaska last September. If you're interested in riding the aircraft, you can track it on Flight Aware. It appears to be flying to East and West Coast destinations including Boston Logan (BOS), Portland (PDX) and Las Vegas (LAS).
