The Sacramento Kings will play a preseason game this week in Mumbai, India, and to get there, they have received help from the rapper and music mogul Drake.
According to reports, Drake is lending the team his custom plane,“Air Drake,” to fly to India.
Drake spent $US185 million to customise the plane, a Boeing 767 that was used to haul cargo. It says “Air Drake” and has his custom owl logo. He gave a glimpse of the inside – which reportedly has a bedroom and two living rooms – on Instagram shortly after buying it.
The Kings said in a statement: “Yesterday, out of consideration for the comfort of the players given the travel time required to make this historic trip to India, the Kings finalised an additional aircraft for the players and several members of the coaching staff.”
Several Kings players told reporters they were excited to fly on the plane. However, Kings guard Buddy Hield expressed some concern that there was no WiFi.
Kings guard De’Aaron Fox said that it would be the longest flight of his life and that he’d need help figuring out what to do for an entire day.
