Jets star Aaron Rodgers drawn into Rudy Gobert debate amidst NBA star’s unusual plan

Rudy Gobert of the Minnesota Timberwolves appears to have borrowed some ideas from four-time MVP Aaron Rodgers for his most recent unconventional activity.

Rudy was chosen by the Denver Nuggets in the first round (27th overall), and he later joined the Utah Jazz for the 2013 NBA Summer League after being traded to them. The French professional basketball player possesses a career record of 386-295 and was named Defensive Player of the Year in 2018, 2019, and 2021.

Gobert followed the footsteps of Aaron Rodger to overcome his mental trauma

The NBA’s top rim protector had been struggling with his teammates, persistent back pain, and occasionally even the officials, so it is hard to even properly comprehend how stressful times those were for him. Finally, stress grasped Gobert so much that he decided to go on a darkness retreat like Rodgers did before joining the Jets when his future in NFL was hanging in the air.

In order to carry out this strategy, he moved to Sky Cave Retreats and confined himself there for 64 hours and later described the experience as “One of the most powerful experiences.”

“64 hours in full darkness. One of the most powerful experiences i’ve had in this lifetime. Thank you @skycaveretreats 🙏🏽,” he wrote on Instagram.

AR also used this place for his darkness treat for four nights when the Packers and the Jets could not come to a conclusion regarding his trade issue and consequently left the former Packers player in much depression that he shared publicly in Pat McAfee’s show. The great quarterback had a wish to play for the Jets, and he eventually found his ideal spot on the team.

“It’s four nights of complete darkness,” he said. “It’s a darkness retreat. I’ve had a number of friends who have done it and have had some profound experiences and it’s been something that’s been on my radar for a few years now.”

Where does Aaron Rodgers rank among Packers' all-time passing records?

Prior to signing with the Jets Aaron began his NFL career with the Packers and spent 18 seasons as the team’s starting quarterback and helped the Packers to a 150-79-1 overall record.

Both Rudy and A-rod, despite once having great careers, recently had to go through a difficult time that required them to engage in a darkness retreat for mental clarity.
