During an appearance on Bill Simmons’ HBO show “Any Given Wednesday,” Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said that he values loyalty and is hoping to finish out his career in Green Bay.
“Two of my favorite players from my sports watching growing up, they recently retired,” Rodgers said, via Pro Football Talk. “One was Derek Jeter with the Yankees and the other was Kobe Bryant. And then Tim Duncan just retired [this week] and that’s a great example too.
“Their legacy, I think it’s made in those later years. Derek is one of the best shortstops ever and one of the best Yankees ever. Kobe is one of the greatest Lakers ever. Tim is one of the best power forwards ever and he won all those championships [in one place].
“They stayed with the same team. They stuck it out. I think there’s a lot to be said about kind of finishing your legacy with one team. I hope I’m lucky enough to be able to do that.”
