Frank Kaminsky wants Cubs to lose so he wore a Steve Bartman jersey

The Chicago Cubs’ season and postseason has been pretty exciting to watch, but not everyone is on board. Frank Kaminsky, Illinois native and center for the Charlotte Hornets, is definitely not on board. He’s a Chicago White Sox fan, and so this MLB postseason hasn’t exactly been pleasant for him. In fact, you could even say that he’s been acting out.

Yup. Frank Kaminsky wore a Steve Bartman jersey to the United Center in Chicago before the Hornets played the Chicago Bulls on Monday. And according to that tweeted video clip, Kaminsky also wore it at a Wrigley rooftop, so it’s incredible that he made it out alive. Considering that Bartman is the star of one of the most painful playoff memories in Cubs history, Kaminsky is certainly making a statement. And that statement is that he wants the Cubs to lose, and lose painfully. (To be fair, he is a White Sox fan.)

Of course, leave it to the Cubs’ witty twitter account to get in on the fun. Once they heard Kaminsky was trying to conjure some powerful curse mojo on the Cubs, they tweeted this:

Kaminsky, of course, had to respond.

And then the Cubs owned him.

Kaminsky would not be stopped, though, so he found a new avenue.

Okay, ouch. But again, the Cubs Twitter account had the perfect response.

After the Cubs’ account brought up Kaminsky’s tough loss with the University of Wisconsin in the 2015 NCAA Finals, Kaminsky had to throw one more curse-related tweet at them for good measure.

If you believe in curses, or if you believe that Kaminsky himself is able to singlehandedly curse the Cubs, you’re probably pretty scared right now. So grab a mug of tea (or whatever beverage pleases you) and your favorite stuffed animal and watch your favorite comfort food TV show until the game starts, if that will make you feel better. But if you don’t think that Kaminsky, one human being, is able to curse the Cubs worse than they’ve been cursed since 1908, then all this is extremely entertaining.

The Cubs and the Los Angeles Dodgers have each won one game in the National League Championship Series. They play Game 3 on Tuesday night in Los Angeles, and you can catch it on FS1 at 8 p.m. ET. There are five games left to play, and with these strong teams it could go either way. Though we obviously know which way Frank Kaminsky wants it to go.
