NBA players react to Aaron Rodgers’ heroics against Chicago

Aaron Rodgers, Packers

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:

Nick Young of the Golden State Warriors, for his, part said:

Bradley Beal of the Washington Wizards sent out a bunch of laughing emoticons:

Eric Gordon of the Houston Rockets apologized to Bears fans:

Marreese Speights, who last played for the Orlando Magic, couldn’t believe that Rodgers was literally playing with one leg:

Carl Landry, who last played for the Philadelphia 76ers, sent out his reaction via an edited photo of Rodgers as Jesus Chris himself:
