Thanks to the San Francisco 49ers, Aaron Rodgers has some free time on his hands. A known fan of Bay Area sports, Rodgers decided to check out the red-hot Golden State Warriors as they took on the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Warriors easily beat the Bucks 101-80 to extend their winning streak to 10 games.  After the game, Rodgers went to the Warriors locker room where he met coach Mark Jackson and some of the players.
