Travis Kelce Booed, Patrick Mahomes Cheered in Dallas During Mavericks Game

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end and quarterback experience jeers and cheers when they are sitting courtside during the NBA game of Dallas Mavericks vs. Minnesota Timberwolves.

AceShowbiz - Sunday night, May 26, the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves 116-107 to take a commanding 3-0 lead in the series, and they did it with a couple of NFL stars sitting courtside. Kansas City Chiefs stars Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce both sat courtside during the intense matchup.

The Chiefs duo, who have won three Super Bowls in the previous five years, appeared to be enjoying themselves immensely as they watched Mavericks stars Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic shine in crunch time once again.

The atmosphere in the American Airlines Arena was electric as Mahomes, a Texas native, and Kelce were shown on the Jumbotron. Mahomes, who has strong ties to Texas Tech and is a vocal Mavericks fan, was met with applause and cheers. He stood up, hyping the crowd and soaking in the admiration with his wife Brittany by his side.

In contrast, Kelce, who has gained elevated celebrity status due to his relationship with Taylor Swift, was greeted with a chorus of boos. Despite appearing stunned, Kelce maintained a grin and played along with the crowd.

This wasn't the first time the Chiefs players encountered a lively Dallas crowd. Not 24 hours earlier, Kelce attended a Dallas Stars NHL game at the same venue, with Mahomes humorously telling him to "get out of my arena." The friendly banter continued on social media, escalating the fan frenzy during the Mavericks' game.

The game itself was a spectacle, with Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving both dropping 33 points and leading the Mavs to victory. Doncic, even received an embrace from Kelce after the game, highlighted by the thrilling final moments as the Mavericks ended on a decisive 12-3 run.

Born in Texas, Mahomes shared the excitement on social media, tweeting, "Atmosphere was crazy tonight! Go @dallasmavs!!!!" The Mavericks' victory not only thrilled their fans but also put them in a prime position to advance to the NBA Finals.

As the American Airlines Center rocked with cheers, it became clear that while Dallas fans hold deep loyalty to their Mavericks, they also showed where their loyalties lie when it comes to other sports celebrities. Travis Kelce, hailed from Ohio, learned firsthand that his newfound celebrity status may come with a few unexpected jeers, especially in the heart of Texas.

With the Mavericks up 3-0, Game 4 is set to be another thrilling chapter in this playoff saga, and it's a matter of speculation whether Kelce will make another courtside appearance.
