Patrick Mahomes is taking his pickup basketball ban in stride. After the Kansas City Chiefs made it clear that they don't want their star QB risking injury in the offseason by hitting the court with friends, Mahomes found a way around the rules that allows him to get his competitive urges out.
The MVP shared a video of himself playing NBA 2K19 with the caption "Only hooping I'm doing these days."
The pickup basketball ban came down after a video of Mahomes on the court went viral. The clip shows Mahomes scorching a defender with a spin move and going in for a layup. All concerned Chiefs staff could see was their franchise player risking knee or ankle injuries after he brought them within spitting distance of the Super Bowl.
News came down quickly from Mahomes' agent, who said the quarterback's hooping days are now in the past.
