KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Worried that Patrick Mahomes might be getting a big head with all the success and attention he's been receiving?

Never fear, his teammates are here to keep the first-year quarterback in check.

"Tyreek thinks I'm slow and can't jump and all this stuff," said Mahomes.

Despite Patrick's insistence that he dunked in high school, Hill wouldn't believe it. So Mahomes decided to retweet a video on Twitter of himself in high school dunking over an opponent. 

That wasn't good enough.

"Man, Pat cannot dunk," said Hill. "That video of Pat once again is not him. That is another kid."

To be fair, it was Mahomes, who did average 19 points and eight rebounds per game in high school.
