Quarterback Patrick Mahomes #15 of the Kansas City Chiefs celebrates a 27-23 win over the Denver Broncos at Broncos Stadium at Mile High on October 1, 2018 in Denver, Colorado.

This week, a video circulated on Twitter of the Chiefs quarterback and league MVP dominating a pickup basketball game at a Kansas City gym.

A video of Patrick Mahomes playing pickup basketball went viral on social media this week.

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

Mahomes' contract does not specifically mention or prohibit him from playing basketball, the Star reported.

Following the release of these patches, the system status page on Apple's website has also been updated to reflect the situation. Apple turned off the group-chat feature last week, after a 14-year-old boy in Tucson, Arizona, discovered the flaw .

"We were laughing but ... the problem with Pat is he does everything 100 miles per hour and is so dang competitive", Veach said.

"He actually was in the office yesterday and we were joking about it", he said.

"Hey, man, you're breaking a lot of ankles out there; just make sure you're not breaking your own", said Veach, who described the conversation as lighthearted Thursday in a teleconference with beat writers. "He doesn't have that filter in his mind to just have fun and not take everything so competitively". But for now, Mahomes might have to stick to golf, which he also seems to be effortlessly good at.

Kansas City finished last season with a 12-4 record and are projected to have the best odds at winning the Super Bowl next season.
