The Packers QB was one of the first to congratulate Giannis and the Bucks for taking home the championship trophy, laying praise not only on their Greek star, but throughout the front office and ownership.
Incredible job by Wes and Mark, Peter, Jon Horst our GM made some incredible moves, and our stars played like stars. Can’t stop 34 💪🏼💪🏼 #champs

Aaron Rodgers, in case you forgot, is also a minority owner of the Milwaukee Bucks franchise. He bought a stake back in 2017, speaking directly to co-owner Wes Edens for a 1% share in the franchise valued at well over a billion dollars at the time. The Packers QB definitely made a savvy investment as that number can only rise after their breathtaking NBA championship run.
“I just wanted to be involved,” Rodgers said in 2019 of his Bucks buy-in. “First of all because I love basketball and second because I’ve been here for so long I wanted, besides my Packer connection, just another natural connection to the state that I love and that I’ve grown up in.”
Perhaps Aaron Rodgers gets motivated to try to replicate the Bucks' success in the NFL? He's obviously done it before, but maybe seeing that green confetti triggers his desire to return. Packers fans surely hope so.
