NBA players react to Aaron Rodgers’ heroics against Chicago
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers mounted a courageous comeback against the Chicago Bears and it lighted up the social media accounts of a chunk of NBA players.
After a seemingly horrendous knee injury which forced Rodgers to the medical tent for some immediate assistance, the Packers quarterback came back in the second half — and he put on quite a show.
Once on the field, he led the Packers offense to a 24-23 victory against the Bears. Per NFL.com, he went 17 of 23 for 273 yards on four second-half scoring drives. The 20-point comeback is the biggest in the 34-year-old’s career.
Several NBA players were tuned in to the game and sent out their respective reactions. Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers had this to say to Rodgers:
