Former Wisconsin basketball star and longtime Chicago White Sox fan Frank Kaminsky has found a cruel way to troll Cubs supporters.
Before his Charlotte Hornets played the Bulls in Chicago on Monday night, Kaminsky—who grew up in Lisle, Illinois, 25 miles southwest of Chicago—wore a Cubs jersey with the name “Bartman” on the back. The shirt references Steve Bartman, the fan who interfered with a catchable foul ball in the 2003 National League Championship Series and was partially blamed for the Cubs losing the series.

The Cubs are tied 1-1 in the best-of-7 series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, with the winner advancing to the World Series.
The White Sox failed to make the playoffs after finishing the regular season 78-84, but that doesn’t mean Kaminsky will root for his crosstown rival.
Kaminsky played for Wisconsin for four years, winning consensus Player of the Year honors for 2014-15, his senior season.
