Charlotte Bobcats Al Jefferson has a bed large enough for a small city (Photo)

Thankfully, I don’t have the struggles of those who are seven feet (or at least, near that size). Of course, I also don’t have the paycheck of those who are near or at seven feet, but I guess that’s the crappy trade-off I get.

But for those who are a bit larger than the normal person, there are a ton of life conveniences we shorter folk may take for granted that extremely tall people (namely NBA players) struggle with.

Case in point? How about Indiana Pacers big man Roy Hibbert trying to fit into an airplane lavatory? It’s like trying to stuff an NFL defensive end into a two-seat convertible – it doesn’t work.

Also not working? A typical bed. A lot of athletes, especially NBA players need custom beds made and Al Jefferson of the Charlotte Bobcats is no different.

The former Utah Jazz big man recently purchased a 10 feet by 12 feet bed worth over $23,000 dollars, which, well, it’s giant.

At first glance, the bed looks relatively normal….


But then, not so much (that’s Mo Williams laying on the bed, not Al Jefferson, just for size sake):


Wonder what he used to ship the bed to Charlotte? A spaceship?
