Patrick Mahomes Shows Relentless Support For Dallas Mavericks

Mahomes is a legend in Texas, having grown up and played college ball in the state. Even though he spends most of his time in Kansas, his heart still lives in Texas and doesn’t forego any opportunity to show his support for the local sports teams.

It’s not a secret that he, like many in that part of the country, grew up supporting the Cowboys and even dreamed of playing for America’s Team. However, being the shot-caller for the Chiefs, he can no longer show the same level of passion that he showed growing up. So, supporting other Texas teams like the Mavericks, Texas Rangers, and the Dallas Stars is the next best thing for him.

Mahomes is not shy about showing his passion for those teams during the matches. He still attends his alma mater Texas Tech games and the Whitehouse High School team.

While the Chiefs plan to stay in Kansas City for at least another 6 years, there was speculation that Clark Hunt might be open to moving the franchise to another part of the country and Dallas was touted as a possible destination. The Chiefs had links to Dallas, having started as Dallas Texans.

It will be interesting to see which team the local fans will support if the defending champions ever move back to Texas.
