Hornets’ Frank Kaminsky burns Cubs in a Twitter war

Oct 18, 2016, 2:42 PM

Noted White Sox fan Frank Kaminsky, the Charlotte Hornets forward, trolled the Chicago Cubs by wearing a Steve Bartman Cubs jersey to his preseason game on Monday night.

The Cubs noticed this and started what became an intense Twitter war by dropping a clever GIF-supplemented zinger at Kaminsky.

That only incited what became a fun back-and-forth.

Kaminsky responded with a GIF of Bartman’s infamous catch, and when the Cubs’ Twitter account appeared unimpressed with the tweet, the Hornets forward then let it rip.

The Cubs set themselves up for failure by calling out Kaminsky for dwelling on his social media loss.

And like jumping on a fastball down the middle, Kaminsky hit a home run with this:

The Cubs are currently tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS with Game 3 of the series set for Tuesday evening.
