Well ... this is awkward.
When it was Warriors guard D'Angelo Russell's turn to speak to the media, he showed up wearing ... an Aaron Rodgers jersey?

But, there's a backstory there.
D'Lo has worked out the with members of the Packers in Agoura Hills, Calif. before. But working out with Rodgers was something extra special for him to see.
"It was cool, man," Russell told NBC Sports Bay Area's Logan Murdock. "Getting to witness the greatness up close -- I was standing out a little bit so it was cool to kind of to see how he carries himself."
Rodgers would work out with Green Bay tackle David Bakhtiari and Russell noticed just how much of an impact the eight-time Pro Bowl quarterback had on those around him.
And the fact that the Packers are playing the local 49ers team on Sunday? Russell said he would be happy if Green Bay got the W.
"It'd be great," he said. "I'd probably wear the same jersey in here."
