Charlotte Hornets forward Frank Kaminsky used to be big on Twitter. It fit his eclectic personality and acerbic sense of humor. Then, recently, Kaminsky cut the cord on the popular social-media app. “Twitter had gotten to be one of the most annoying things in my life, so I just deleted it,” Kaminsky said Wednesday morning. He said that decision was not specific to criticism from Hornets fans, but every professional athlete has to figure how to deal with the grief that comes with these high-profile jobs. Fans griping about a team’s poor performance far predates Twitter or Facebook, but the level of vitriol seems raised in these social-media times.
That “Let it roll off your back” approach is to some extent how every player or coach processes a disappointing season, like the Hornets (18-25) have had so far. But it’s also understandable how Kaminsky feels regarding some caustic fans. “Here’s my thing: You can tell who the real fans are, who show up to games. Those are the people who support you no matter what, through the highs and the lows. Good times, bad times,” Frank Kaminsky said. “And then there are those, I want to say ‘Not-so-into-it’ fans who think they know everything, who think they are like the (general manager) of the team and they should make all the decisions. They’re the ones who show up to the games and boo, think they have a better idea how things are done. Those people are never good for an organization. “Nicolas Batum said it (well): You’ve just got to tune out the bad, and focus on all the positive fans and all the good things they say about you. All the people who root for you, those are the people you play for.”
