So last week I came across a crazy picture of an invoice for a gigantic 10′ x 12′ bed set that was about to be delivered to a certain Al Jefferson of Salt Lake City. I tweeted out the following:

A few days later, Mo Williams posted pictures of the bed on instagram and twitter:

There are probably good reasons for a professional athlete of gigantic proportions to buy a gigantic bed. But a $23,000 bed better be able to cook breakfast and drive you to work, is all I’m saying. It was definitely poor timing to have the pictures come out the day after the ESPN debut of “Broke,” a documentary about how professional athletes lose their money.

As Herm Edwards said in the documentary, some athletes have champagne taste but beer money. Al Jefferson is one who is making legitimate champagne money, but if the picture below is any indication, I think he paid champagne money for a beer-level bed. Not even Memory Foam!

The invoice is itemized and appears to charge $10,000 for the mattress alone. Is the bed frame made out of solid gold? What is the thread count for sheets that cost $900? They even gave him a $6,000 discount–probably for purchasing their “Bed the Size of a Normal Apartment Package.” Is the bed flavored? Can it sing you to sleep? So many questions.
