Patrick Mahomes is more than just the reigning NFL MVP. He's also a big basketball fan, and showed his support for the skills of one young Lakers fan with a retweet and comment on Twitter late last night.

The Chiefs' starting QB said "Yoooo my man couldn't miss!" in response to a video of a Lakers fan named Maxx that was on fire during the team's halftime shooting contest.

Maxx knocked down shot after shot, including two NBA 3-pointers. He literally did not miss until a fade away attempt from the free throw line as time was running out.

Mahomes, as well as tens of thousands of the QB's Twitter followers were clearly impressed by what they saw in the video as his comment has more than 13,000 likes, as of publication.

This kid did things that many of his elders would have lots of trouble pulling off. And he did it with all eyes on him on Tuesday night.

Mahomes also has that clutch gene as he's proven many times on the football field, so all that really happened here was talent recognizing talent. He simply gave credit where credit was due, and the Twitterverse surely took notice.
