Aaron Rodgers is one of the best, if not the best, quarterbacks in the National Football League (NFL), but he's nowhere near one of the best plumbers you can get to fix your sink - just as National Basketball Association (NBA) star Sam Dekker.

Dekker has had a heck of an off season thus far, after being traded from the Houston Rockets to the Los Angeles Clippers. Dekker and Rodgers were hanging out in Dekker's new L.A. home when the newest addition to the Clippers headed over to his kitchen to make lunch.

Upon his arrival, however, Dekker noticed that something wasn't quite right with his sink, and he called upon the help of the face of the Green Bay Packers organization.

Dekker took to Twitter to post a hilarious picture of Rodgers at work underneath the sink, as the quarterback smiled back at the camera with a thumbs up:

Rodgers spoke to the press about the hilarious story and explained what happened. Here's what he had to say (quotes via The Wisconsin State Journal):

"I've actually fixed my own garbage disposal before. There's incredible tutorials on YouTube," Rodgers said. "So I did that at one point. Fixed it.

"Sam, he just got traded to L.A., I was hanging out with him Saturday. He was having some sink issues, asked for my help. He's 23 years old.

"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.

"What the tutorial told me was to test the switch first, (and then) what kind of rumble you hear or lack of rumble tells you what's going on with the garbage disposal.

"So, I flipped the switch and nothing happened. (That) means two things: One, it's completely broken and it needs to be changed out, or two, it's not plugged in.

"It wasn't plugged in," Rodgers said with a laugh. "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.'"
