Amidst all the other drama in Green Bay, Aaron Rodgers and Devante Adams are now comparing themselves to Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen.
NFL fans were not having it. The two shared the same story on Instagram, a reference to ‘The Last Dance’ alluding to the fact that the duo may be on their way out in Green Bay.
Rodgers has been a rumored trade candidate for a long time now, and now it looks like Devante Adams is going to join him too. The star wideout has engaged in contract talks with the Packers, but nothing fruitful has come out of it, and it isn’t looking likely that anything will either.

This turmoil prompted Rodgers and Adams to post the same cryptic story on their Instagram.

Aaron Rodgers And Davante Adams Are Like Charles Barkley Ring Chasing With The Houston Rockets, Should Compare Themselves To Tom Brady And Rob Gronkowski First
Fans found several ways to undermine Rodgers and Adams’ story. Their biggest issue was with the fact that Rodgers and Adams have failed to win a ring together.
Thus, with both of them on their way out, many people have them being compared to Charles Barkley, who joined the Houston Rockets late in his career to try and team up with Hakeem Olajuwon, and Clyde Drexler to go all out and win a ring.
Of course, whenever Rodgers’ name comes up anywhere for whatever reason, Tom Brady’s is quick to follow. Fans have debated who the better quarterback is for years now, and with Aaron Rodgers pulling the trigger on his social media in this manner, fans had to point out that Brady had never done something like this.
Brady’s partner in crime has always been Rob Gronkowski as the duo have won three titles together. Therefore, fans were mocking Rodgers and Adams for comparing themselves to Jordan and Pippen when they couldn’t even get on Brady and Gronk’s level.
Tom Brady & Gronk would be more accurate representation. Aaron Rodgers & Adams is like Charles Barkley ring chasing with the Rockets but I do understand their reference. Gotta love the drama that rips teams apart 😂

NFL Fans Mock Rodgers And Davante Adams For Calling Themselves Michael Jordan And Scottie Pippen
NFL fans from all around reacted with varying levels of distaste towards Rodgers and Adams story. For context, ‘The Last Dance’ was a documentary centered around Jordan and Pippen’s last year together with the Chicago Bulls.
The duo had won five NBA championships, and while their dynasty had been cemented as one of the greatest (if not the greatest) in NBA history, it looked like things were finally coming to an end in that storied 1998 season.
Jordan, head coach Phil Jackson, and general manager Jerry Krause were feuding, and Scottie Pippen looked to be on his last legs. That prompted ‘The Last Dance’ moniker out of the final season as the team knew that they were most likely gearing up for one final run together, one last championship, one last season, one last dance.
Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams may be trying to communicate the same message here. The disputes with the front office seem to have finally come to a head, and it’s prompting some pretty passive-aggressive reactions from both sides.
However, the main difference between Jordan and Pippen and Rodgers and Adams is that the former actually won five titles together before they came to the conclusion that they’d be pairing up one last time. Rodgers and Adams have not won a Super Bowl together. That’s what made some fans pretty mad over the whole affair.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t Jordan and Pippen actually *win* championships?
