Aaron Rodgers and Sauce Gardner have hit it off right away since the four-time MVP quarterback joined the New York Jets after a trade with the Green Bay Packers closed.
The budding friends were spotted courtside at Madison Square Garden for Game 2 of the New York Knicks-Miami Heat second round series in the NBA Playoffs. The quarterback and cornerback sat next to each other among the many other stars in New York City on Tuesday night.
But Rodgers learned just how young his new friend and teammate is by the end of the night.

Gardner, 22, spoke to the New York media on Wednesday and revealed that he has met quite a few stars.
«I met some movie stars. I met Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Tracy Morgan. I met quite a few people,» he said.
But Rodgers, 39, was surprised that Gardner had no idea who actress Jessica Alba was when he pointed her out a few seats away.

«When we were sitting down, he was just picking on me for being young,» Gardner explained. “We were sitting down and he said, ‘We’re about to sit next to Jessica Alba.’ I’m like, ‘I don’t know who it is. He looked at me like he was crazy. It was cool sitting there, and I got to meet her and one of her friends who was from Detroit, actually. It was a great vibe.»
From then on, Gardner said Rodgers kept trying to make a fool of him for the rest of the night.
«That whole night, he kept asking me, ‘Do you know who that person is?’ I’m like, ‘That’s Amar’e Stoudemire. I know who she is. Now you’re just bugging me at this point,'» Gardner said.
The Jets duo witnessed a Knicks win after they came back in the fourth quarter to defeat the Heat in Game 2 to even the series at one game apiece.
Jets fans must also love that Rodgers is getting acclimated not only to his new city, but more importantly, to his new teammates. It came as no surprise that Rodgers was also seen in the New York Rangers’ first-round series against the New Jersey Devils at The Garden.
Allen Lazard, a Rodgers teammate with the Packers who signed with the Jets before their quarterback traveled east, was also with him on the floor for Game 1 of the Knicks-Heat series.
Rodgers and Gardner are already creating excitement among Jets fans who are clamoring to see them on the field together in September.

Until then, maybe Rodgers needs to sit Gardner down and watch «Fantastic Four» or another Alba movie to introduce him to his work.
