Patrick Mahomes decided to both back and troll Tyreek Hill at the same time on Twitter.
Tyreek Hill and Patrick Mahomes provided fans with a good laugh Thursday after Hill sent out a tweet in reaction to what he perceived as a slight.
Patrick Mahomes trolls his teammate in support
First it was Anthony Hitchens who chimed in to remind Hill he did not fit the specifications of the tweet from NFLonCBS.
That was funny enough. But leave it to Mahomes to offer up a comment that could be taken as both supportive and as a huge troll.
Several sources show Hill listed at 5-foot-10. So why he thinks he is under 5-foot-9 remains a mystery. Arguing that you are shorter than your listed height is not a strategy seen often. Maybe he is a victim of a false height due to being measured in cleats.
Professional athletes being able to communicate on Twitter just like the rest of us is definitely a cool feature of the sometimes awful social media platform. Mahomes even shared a legendary reply showing that perhaps Hill is in fact shorter than 5-foot-9.
That picture is too much. Or perhaps too little?
All fans can go off is the official NFL measurements. And if Hitchens thinks Hill is being ridiculous, even Mahomes’ troll job won’t convince fans the Chiefs receiver should be included on a list topped by Cole Beasley.
It is easy to see why Chiefs fans have so much fun watching this team. The winning obviously helps, but so does all the fun personalities. Mahomes is a true leader who is both talented and funny. He may end up being the mayor of Kansas City one day, trolling us all into oblivion on Twitter or whatever social media site exists at that time.
