Aaron Rodgers is that one player who often gets the short end of the stick. Almost always on the receiving end of negative comments, Rodgers has now become adept at handling the negativity. Inspired by the New York Jets quarterback’s poise, NBA star Rudy Gobert approached Rodgers after himself having to face negativity from his peers.

As reported by ESPN, to drown out the negativity, the superstar quarterback suggested Gobert to go on a darkness retreat to drown out the noise. After spending 64 hours in the dark room, the Minnesota Timberwolves star has finally given his take on this unique experience.

It was a very powerful experience. It felt like a huge reset and also a powerful checkpoint. I had a lot of gratitude. When you're in the dark, it shows the things that are inside of you. If you're negative, you see negative things. And if you're positive, you see positive things. So, you realize that at the end of the day, you create your own reality.
Rudy Gobert said

Rudy Gobert was thankful that Aaron Rodgers‘ suggestion helped him find himself. Being able to drown out the noise was the first step.

Despite playing in the NBA for 11 seasons and being selected to the 3 All-NBA teams, the France international still finds a lot of negatives coming from peers as well as analysts. At one point, he was voted as the most overrated player in the NBA.

The New York Jets superstar’s advice has helped the 7′ 1″ star take his Minnesota Timberwolves to one of the top teams in the Western Conference, and a 2-0 in the 1st round of the playoffs. A change of fortune for which he owes some gratitude to the 4-time NFL MVP.

Aaron Rodgers and the New York Jets preparing for a Super Bowl

The New York Jets essentially lost all of last season with Rodgers recovering from his Achilles tear. Despite having a losing season, the Jets actually had a season where they could measure the talent depth of their players. Since then, they have made significant moves in the off-season, signing and trading for players who they believe are clear upgrades over their previous options.

All of that bodes well for Aaron Rodgers as he prepares to get back on to the field. He is already making inroads by practicing with superstar wideout Garrett Wilson before the official OTAs. Even though question marks still persist around the offensive line, the Jets have actually managed to get better overall.

After all this, the only end result in sight should be the Super Bowl. Anything else, and the NFL world will come down more brutally on Rodgers and the Jets.
