Playoffs 2018 East First Round: Celtics (2) vs. Bucks (7)
Touchdown Bucks! Packers' Aaron Rodgers buys into NBA team
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has joined the ownership group of the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks as a limited partner.
The Bucks made the announcement Friday night between the first and second quarters of Game 3 of their Eastern Conference playoff series against the Boston Celtics. The Bucks say that Rodgers is the only active NFL player to be a limited partner of an NBA team.
Sitting next to girlfriend Danica Patrick and Bucks co-owner Wes Edens, Rodgers received a warm welcome from the sold-out crowd when his face was shown on the video board at the Bradley Center.
Rodgers in a statement says the opportunity is a ”dream come true” for him. A big fan of the NBA, Rodgers has also cheered on the Wisconsin Badgers in the NCAA Tournament.
