Packers’ Aaron Rodgers reacts to Bucks’ early playoff exit

Aaron Rodgers, Bucks

Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers believes the Milwaukee Bucks would have beaten the Miami Heat in the second round of the 2020 playoffs had the team been able to play at home.

The Bucks have one of the biggest home-court advantages in the NBA, as the fans at Fiserv Forum get really rowdy. Unfortunately, COVID-19 forced the 2020 playoffs to take place at the Walt Disney campus in Orlando, Florida where no fans were allowed.

As a result, the Bucks didn’t look like an elite team at Disney World and got bounced by the Heat in five quick games.

In April of 2018, Aaron Rodgers became a part-owner of the Bucks. The Super Bowl-winning quarterback is certainly upset that Milwaukee wasn’t able to win the title this season, especially since the team racked up the best record in the regular season for the second straight campaign.

Rodgers and the Packers open their 2020 season on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Now that the Bucks’ season is over, fans in Wisconsin will be shifting their focus to the Packers, who always have a chance to compete for a championship since Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

As for Milwaukee, they’ll offer superstar small forward Giannis Antetokounmpo the supermax extension this offseason and pray he’ll sign it. If he doesn’t, Giannis will become an unrestricted free agent in 2021.
