SALT LAKE CITY — One athlete is giving new meaning to the term "king sized bed." Jazz player, Al Jefferson had a huge bed custom made that leaves enough room for practically everyone on the team.
Al Jefferson averages about $15 million a season, and the big player decided he wanted a big bed. He is about 6'10 and 265 pounds, but the bed can more than accommodate the Jazz player.
Jefferson's teammate, Mo Williams, tweeted out a few pictures of the bed, one with him in it. Jefferson's 10 foot by 12 foot bed was shipped to him last week, and is about four times the size of a double king bed. The custom made bed cost over $23,000 and is large enough to fit a family of five or a small car.
Williams took a picture of himself trying out the bed, and the 6'1 and 185 pound guard looks tiny in comparison. Now, Jefferson will just have to worry about getting custom made sheets and comforters big enough to fit his bed.
