Kristaps Porzingis has become a brand ambassador for Shifman mattresses. Shifman is a manufacturer and distributor of handcrafted sleeping mattresses and has been around since 1893. With this partnership, Kristaps will have the luxury of sleeping on a new athletic king bed.
Dime Magazine wrote a full article about Kristaps, his new partnership, and the Knicks. In one part of a Q&A, when asked about the size of the bed, “the Shifman CEO admits, ‘It’s the largest one we’ve ever made,’ even though they’ve made three beds for Dikembe Mutombo’s stops in Atlanta, New Jersey and Philadelphia. Mount Mutombo’s King-sized bed was 80 x 90, so Kristaps has an additional eight inches of length.”
