Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes said he bought “a plot of land” for a future home near Kansas City during a wide-ranging interview Thursday on “The Dan Patrick Show” ahead of his team’s Super Bowl 55 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Mahomes, who agreed to a 10-year extension with the Chiefs in July that is worth up to $503 million, told Patrick he’s planning some epic amenities.
“I’m going to have a half football field so I can get some work in with some guys out there,” Mahomes said.
And he joked about his basketball plans: “I’ll have a basketball court. But don’t tell (Kansas City general manager) Brett Veach. That’s not for me, that’s for the kids.”
In 2019, Mahomes was seen playing basketball at a rec center, raising concern about a potential offseason injury. Veach called Mahomes’ agent, Leigh Steinberg, right after he saw footage of the pick-up game and called it a “big no-no.”
In the interview with Patrick, Mahomes said he thought early on that the NBA would come calling, rather than the NFL.
