Most recently, the 6’10 Power Forward added on this. When the Brow dropped 44 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists in Lakers’ terrific victory over the Bucks, AD was quick to acknowledge how Rodgers played a role by sitting on the courtside seat.

On one hand, where Aaron Rodgers sarcastically told Anthony Davis to ‘drop 30 (points) not 40.’ The former star was also quick in responding to it, but perhaps with the chivalry he should show to the footballing legend.

The 8xAll-Star said this after the game, “You guys know how I feel about the Pack and him. So, I saw him before the game. He was like, ‘AD, man, I’m going to need 30 tonight’. And then I just saw him [after the game], he said, ‘I only said 30. Not 40’. So, it’s always good for him to come out and watch the Lakers play, watch me play. He’s a fan [of me] just how I’m a fan of his.”

To those who are not aware of what Rodgers was doing at the Fiserv Forum, watching Lakers vs Bucks – The reigning as well as four-time MVP was celebrating his 39th birthday at the same game and was treated to a stellar game by Anthony Davis.
