Aaron Rodgers made no effort in declaring Tom Brady and Michael Jordan as the greatest players in American football and NBA history, respectively.
The New York Jets star was in conversation with former Milwaukee Bucks star Serge Ibaka in his YouTube series “How Hungry Are You?” as they pondered their respective sports.
First, Ibaka asked the Jets quarterback who was the best player to ever hold the position, with the 39-year-old replying, “Greatest quarterback? I think it probably has to go through Championships, so that would be Tom (Brady).
Rodgers then asked Ibaka who the greatest NBA player was, to which Ibaka replied, “That’s a tough question. »
However, Rodgers didn’t care, saying, “Michael Jordan, that’s not even close!”
Ibaka shot back, saying modern basketball fans might say LeBron James and the debate isn’t that simple, to which the Jets star replied, “It’s for me!
“I grew up watching Mike. It’s my opinion and I’m entitled to it!
Rodgers’ opinion of sports greats holds real significance because of his own success in the NFL.
The 39-year-old won the Super Bowl once and was MVP on the way to victory for the Green Bay Packers, while also being named NFL MVP four times.
Rodgers will compete for the New York Jets this season as the superstar looks to lead his new employers to the Vince Lombardi Trophy during his time in the Big Apple.
