Aaron Rodgers and new Jets teammate Sauce Gardner were on court Tuesday for the Knicks’ Game 2 victory over the Heat, and the sophomore pro showed off his youth in a hilarious exchange with the quarterback.
Gardner sat around a celebrity who’s-who and saw some of his favorite stars — but had to admit he wasn’t familiar with Jessica Alba.
“When we sat down,[Rodgers]just teased me a little bit because I was young,” Gardner told reporters Wednesday.
“We sat down and he was like ‘we’ll sit down,’ what’s her name?” “We’re going to sit with Jessica Alba in a minute,” and I’m like, “Oh, I don’t know who that is.” And he just looked at me, he looked at me like I was crazy.’
Given that Gardner is only 22 years old and the fact that some of Alba’s biggest films, such as ‘Fantastic Four’ (2005), ‘Sin City’ (2005) and ‘Good Luck Chuck’ (2007), came out almost two decades ago, it is it’s not hugely surprising that the cornerback wouldn’t know her.

Nevertheless, it was clearly a source of amusement for 39-year-old Rodgers throughout the night.
“It was just amazing to be able to sit there, and I got to know her,” Gardner said.
And actually one of her friends, who was from Detroit (just like him). It was a great vibe, but that whole night he kept asking me out of the blue, like ‘do you know who that person is? I’m like ‘bro, that’s Amar’e Stoudemire, I know who that is. Now you’re just teasing me.”
Alba was far from the only celebrity in the audience, as tennis star Roger Federer, ‘Entourage’ actor Jerry Ferrara and ‘Outer Banks’ actress Madelyn Cline were also in attendance.
Furthermore, Gardner said he could meet comedians Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and Tracy Morgan.

Alba appeared to be having a great time at the event and thanked Knicks forward Julius Randle after the game.
Congratulations @nyknicks on the W! Thank you @juliusrandle30 for the invite, you are a kind soul,” Alba wrote on Instagram.
“And it was great to see your leadership on the field.”
The Knicks will now play Games 3 and 4 in Miami before returning to New York for Game 5 and a possible Game 7.
