Basketball bloggers have been losing their minds over the last seven days or so over the discovery that Utah Jazz power forward Al Jefferson has a $23,287 bed in his bedroom.
Equally impressive to the price is the size of this beast: 10′ x 12′. And Al has the receipt to prove the price.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Al’s bed isn’t even close to being the world’s largest.
The largest bed measures 26.5 m (86 ft 11 in) long, 16.44 m (53 ft 11 in) wide and was created by Commissie Zomerfeesten St Gregorius Hertme (Netherlands) in Hertme, the Netherlands, on 28 May 2011.
The record was attempted during the Zomerfeesten St Gregorius (summer festival St Gregorius) in Hertme.
That’s Mo Williams in the bed. He’s 6′ 1″.
As for those of you worried that Al is blowing money on ridiculous items and could end up on the next ESPN 30 for 30 Broke edition, he has cashed $57,019,285 in his 8-year career; Al will make $15,000,000 in ’12-’13.
In other words, it’s like going to Mattress Mart and buying a Sealy.
