In the first quarter of the game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Toronto Raptors Rodgers became embroiled in a drinking contest with Green Bay Packers team-mate David Bakhtiari.
With the Bucks holding an 11-3 lead with 9:09 on the clock in the first quarter, cameras panned to Bakhtiari, a Packers offensive lineman, who managed to drink two pints in 11 seconds.
Cameras then panned to Rodgers, and with the action playing out on the large screens at the Fiserv Forum, fans waited to see how the 35-year-old would fair.
After toasting the crowd, the NFL MVP and Game of Thrones extra, tried to drink the three quarters remaining of his beer in one go, but failed to do so.
Cameras then surprised Bakhtiari as they quickly panned back to the 27-year-old, but with the crowd cheering him on, he only took three seconds to finish his third pint.
Fans were quick to react to seeing the Packers team-mates battle it out in Milwaukee.
One fan summed it up when he said: “Aaron Rodgers choked big time there.
“Wow. Gotta get that down.”
Another said: “Oh Aaron Rodgers you need some work buddy!”
One fan pointed out that Rogers was just trying a different technique, and said: “Ty Aaron Rodgers for showing people the art of slow chugging. David Bakhtiari ur doing it wrong!!”
While another fan felt it wasn’t a good example being set by having a drinking contest, they said: “Great role models for kids. There is a real good reason the Packers have a losing record.”
Rodgers, who is a part owner of the Bucks, is hoping to see his side win Game 5 of the series with the winner facing the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.
Milwaukee took a two-game lead in the series before losing games three and four.
The Bucks lost Game 4 120-102 to the Raptors, but their star player Giannis Antetokounmpo is expecting Milwaukee to win the final game at home.
“There is no pressure,” he said ahead of tip-off.
“Obviously we got to take care of home, it’s our job, but there is no pressure.”
Milwaukee’s run in the NBA playoffs this season has marked their first successful run in the post-season in 18 years, after having previously lost in the first round of the playoffs in all of their last eight appearances.
The Bucks entered the playoffs as the top-seeded team in the Eastern Conference with the Raptors in second.
