Packers' Rogers looking to take a page out of Tim Duncan's book
It looks as if Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers wants to follow the footsteps of San Antonio Spurs legend Tim Duncan.
During Packers camp, Rodgers spoke on New England Patriots' Tom Brady playing at the age of 40. It sparked a thought in him where he hopes he is playing at that age with the Packers.
If so, he's play just for one team throughout his career a la Duncan.
"It's being a sports fan and watching some of my favorite all-time players either not finish in the place they started or the place where you fell in love watching them play -- or they did," Rodgers said. "And seeing how different the memory is of those players as a fan, and seeing some of my favorite players growing finishing up now or have finished up in the last two or three years -- the Derek Jeters, the Kobe Bryants, the Tim Duncans -- doing it their entire career in one place, that makes things pretty special.”
Duncan played 19 years all with the Spurs - something you don't see often from pro-players.
That longevity with one team is hard to find nowadays in the NBA with superstars moving so frequently such as LeBron James, Chris Paul, and possibly Kyrie Irving in the hopes of forming super teams.
