Where Do NBA Players Buy Their Beds?
Players of the NBA are big guys in terms of weight, height and general presence that they naturally require a king single bed to sleep in. It is typical for the basic products that NBA players use to be specialized or made to order. That goes for beds too because bed manufacturers very rarely produces king single bed that will fit a Sacramento King. In order to be comfortable, the best option for a Sacramento King is to have a bed customized to be comfortable while sleeping.
Do you want to know the size of the bed of an NBA player? New Utah Jazz guard Mo Williams tweeted a photo of the bed of his teammate Al Jefferson. It is a huge piece of furniture that is likely to fit a normal-sized family of 5 including several of their pets. Spencer Ryan Hall of Jazz blog Salt City Hoops found out that the bed is 10 by 12 feet or large enough to accommodate comfortably two normal-sized grizzly bears including a Mini Cooper.
Al Jefferson is 30 years old and has listed weight of 289 pounds (131 kg) and listed height of 6 feet 10 inches (2.08 meter). It is very obvious that Jefferson needs a very big bed however; it is not the size of the bed that will shock you beyond belief. It is the exorbitant price tag attached to the item.
Believe or not but Jefferson’s giant bed costs more than $23,000 for the single item. If you will compare it the price of a top-of-the-line Tempur-Pedic, a king sized bed is offered for more than $9,000 in retail or roughly $14,000 less than Jefferson’s bed. Jefferson can certainly afford his bed because he is set to make $15 million this season with another sizeable deal when he becomes a free agent next summer.
The sad thing is Jefferson’s travel schedule does not allow him to sleep in his bed as often as he wishes to during the NBA season unless he hires a caravan of elephants to carry his giant bed from city to city. They say that you cannot put a price for comfort and Jefferson has certainly taken his lessons at heart.
