Aaron Rodgers Calls Magic Johnson The 'Jon Gruden' of Basketball Coverage

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is a rich man. He’s also a fan, just like you and I.

Rodgers, who loves him some NBA action (notably a Sacramento Kings fan – shameless plug) was getting tired of Magic Johnson‘s basketball coverage during the NBA Finals and finally let his feelings be known on the subject Thursday night.

Magic is quickly becoming the John Gruden of ESPN NBA coverage. Everybody is the greatest everything. #bedtime

Rodgers’ irritation of Magic’s analysis came after the Miami Heat won the NBA Championship and Magic began to slobber over anything and everything related to the Heat, especially LeBron James.

Maybe not the most politically correct thing to say, but it’s hard to disagree. Magic, great of a talent as he was isn’t exactly a premier analyst by any stretch and at times tends to go a bit overboard, to say the least.

Also completely random but a hilarious unintentional swipe at Gruden, who Rodgers will most surely run into a few times this coming season. That should be an interesting convo.
