Tyreek Hill Chiefs Backflip at 2nd Annual Celebrity Hoops Game
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Chemistry is key for the reigning AFC champions.
A handful of Kansas City chiefs cited team bonding and the importance of supporting each other while warming up for the second annual Tyreek Hill Celebrity Basketball Game on Friday in Kansas City.
âI think at any time when one of your teammates at an event like this you always want to be there to support him,â began safety Tyrann Mathieu.
The event, which took place at the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Kansas City – Thornberry Unit, brought Hill and Mathieu together alongside their teammates Chris Jones, Gehrig Dieter, Khalen Saunders and Marcus Kemp. Former single Matt James and Devin Funchess, the Green Bay Packers’ expander, also performed.
âI have offensive guys here … I have defensive guys here,â Hill said.
After his first three of the game, Hill quickly spiked a teammate before throwing a leaping backflip near the half court strip.
“This team here has always been close and that’s how it’s going to stay,” he finished.
Working towards a third straight Super Bowl appearance, the players spoke candidly about their day-to-day work and upcoming training camp at St. Joseph.
âI won the Super Bowl when we were at St. Joeâ¦ so I know Coach Reid is going to eat that,â defensive tackle Khalen Sunders joked.
âIt’s going to be tough trying to come back to the Super Bowl for the third time in a rowâ¦ but you know in our locker room a lot of guys believe it,â Mathieu said.
