Chiefs general manager Brett Veach advices Patrick Mahomes to stop playing basketball

Chiefs general manager Brett Veach advices Patrick Mahomes to stop playing basketball”

Very impressive moves to fans, but not to the Kansas City Chiefs organization.

A video of the NFL MVP playing pick-up basketball went viral earlier this week, but the Chiefs were not impressed by his spin moves.

"The [Chiefs] Kingdom can be assured: No more basketball for Pat".

"As soon as I saw it, it probably took me about two seconds to call his agent and tell him that was a big no-no", Veach said on the radio station Thursday.

If you had to choose the top throw Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes made in the 2018 season, what comes to mind?

"You're breaking a lot of ankles out there, just make sure you're not breaking your own", Veach said.

That seems a little excessive, but when you're the 23-year-old MVP of the National Football League, it's reasonable for your franchise to be overprotective.

Veach explained Mahomes is too competitive as a person to just play basketball without going too hard. We were able to nip that in the bud, " Veach told WHB, per ESPN. As corner Richard Sherman points out, however, if there isn't a stipulation in the 23-year-old's contract against playing basketball, there is little recourse for the team if Mahomes were to decide to ignore the order.

Yes, basketball is a prohibited activity in Patrick Mahomes' contract.
