Charlotte Hornets’ Center Frank Kaminsky, a native of the Chicagoland area, is a die hard Chicago White Sox fan. This post-season he’s turned into a professional Cubs troll, much to the displeasure of hyper-superstitious North Siders who deeply believe that their 100-year World Series drought is directly related to a curse from a farm animal.
Last night, with Charlotte facing the Bulls in a meaningless preseason contest, Kaminsky entered the United Center decked out in a #44 “Bartman” Cubs jersey, in reference to the headphone-wearing Cubs fan, who interfered with Moises Alou’s attempt to catch a foul ball in Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS against the Marlins. A series Chicago eventually lost.
Many Cubs fans view Bartman as the human embodiment of the longstanding curse. Troll game, strong.

Kaminsky also wore the jersey to a Wrigley rooftop party for Game 2 of the NLCS. A game the Cubs dropped 1-0 to the Dodgers. According to Kaminsky, Cubs fans were none to pleased.
When asked why he feels the need to mercilessly troll Cubs fans, Kaminsky admitted, “I’m a White Sox fan. I don’t want to see the Cubs do well.”
As far as Cubs trolls go, Kaminsky is the G.O.A.T.
