Frank Kaminsky had tanks inside his NBA draft suit jacket

Friday June 26th, 2015

True to his “Frank the Tank” nickname, Wisconsin forward Frank Kaminsky revealed he had tanks sewn into his suit jacket after he was drafted by the Charlotte Hornets on Thursday.

In hindsight, it’s not a very surprising revelation—and that takes absolutely nothing away from it.

Kaminsky met Will Ferrell—the original “Frank the Tank” from Old School—when his Wisconsin Badgers arrived in Los Angeles for the Sweet 16 in march and also posed for the cover of Sports Illustrated in front of an actual tank, so Thursday night’s suit jacket was the next in line of a natural progression.

We can‘t wait to hear what Hornets owner Michael Jordan has to say about Kaminsky’s getup.’s NBA draft tracker
