Recently, star quarterback Patrick Mahomes stirred up a discussion on social media (formerly Twitter) with his choice of beverages while attending the Dallas Mavericks game against the Toronto Raptors at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Despite the Dallas Mavericks facing a 127-116 defeat, the spotlight shifted to Mahomes, who was photographed at the game sporting his $1860 Louis Vuitton Trainer Sneakers. Interestingly, three Coors Light beer bottles were captured beside him on the floor, sparking a varied debate among NFL fans on X.
The discussion on X ranged from some dismissing the significance of Mahomes’ choice of beverages to others expressing disapproval. A sarcastic remark questioning Mahomes’ role model status was among the critiques.
Reactions were diverse, but it’s essential to consider Mahomes’ financial standing and lifestyle. The quarterback has secured lucrative endorsement deals over the last few years, with partnerships established with notable brands like Hugo Boss, T-Mobile, and Walmart. Mahomes has earned approximately $20 million from these endorsement deals alone. Beyond these three major endorsements, he has also affiliated with Hunt’s Ketchup, Head and Shoulders, BioSteel Sports, Adidas, State Farm, Oakley, and Subway. Week after week, Mahomes seems to accumulate more endorsements, solidifying his status as a sought-after figure in the sports and advertising realms.
