Los Angeles Clippers forward Sam Dekker is adjusting to life in LA after being traded from the Houston Rockets this summer, but he needs help sometimes.
Dekker tweeted a picture of Green Bay Packers quarterback and apparent handyman Aaron Rodgers under his sink making a fix.
The photo didn’t come with an explanation of what had happened, but was amusing nonetheless.

Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal got to the bottom of the story and reported that Rodgers was visiting Dekker (who went to school at University of Wisconsin, hence the connection) when Dekker’s sink backed up. Unsure of what to do, he asked Rodgers for help. Rodgers apparently got to the bottom of it very quickly.
“All it was was, he went under there and somehow my disposal unplugged,” Dekker said. “So that was literally the only fix needed.”
Rodgers told Wilde: “It wasn’t plugged in. So, that’s the picture of me holding the plug as I call him from the other room, and said, ‘Hey, idiot, it wasn’t plugged in.'”
Rodgers said he had to fix his own sink recently and discovered that YouTube has some “incredible tutorials.”
He also said that Dekker, who is ten years younger than him, is still learning and growing.
“He’s 23 years old,” Rodger said. “I know he’s engaged and taking the next step to being an adult, but he’s not quite there yet. So I went under the sink … He’s learning.”
