Frank Kaminsky grew up right outside Chicago in the suburb of Lisle, Illinois. However, the former Wisconsin Badgers star and current Charlotte Hornet is not rooting for the Cubs to win the World Series. Frank the Tank was raised a White Sox fan, which means he hates the Cubs with every fiber of his being. And with the Cubs currently battling the Dodgers for the National League pennant, Kaminsky is making sure everyone in Chicago knows where his allegiance lies.

Kaminsky’s Hornets rolled into Chi-Town on Sunday ahead of a preseason game against the Bulls on Monday. On Sunday night, Kaminsky showed up at a rooftop bar in Wrigleyville weaing a custom-made Cubs jersey with the iconic C logo removed from the front and the name BARTMAN on the back. Then on Monday Kaminsky wore the jersey to the United Center prior to his game against the Bulls.


The Bartman on the back of Kaminsky’s jersey is of course a reference to Steve Bartman, the lifelong Cubs fan who interfered with Moises Alou‘s attempt to catch a foul ball during Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS, and who was subsequently villainized after the Cubs went on to collapse and lose that series to the Marlins.

Kaminsky’s shirt sparked a Twitter feud between himself and the Cubs and, amazingly, the Cubs actually came out on top. Take a look:


Of course, we all know Frank will get the last laugh if the heavily favored Cubs don’t reach the World Series.
