"Everybody saw what he was," Norman said, referring (once again) to the Dec. 20 game in which Beckham was charged with three personal fouls involving Norman. "People from around the league were coming up to me afterward and saying, 'He does that crap all the time.' He lost so much respect from people for that little tantrum.
"I've already got a couple people telling me, 'OK, I've got a hit out on him.' It's going to be rough for him this year. And he brought it on himself."
You can be sure ears at Park Avenue perk up when one star player says there's a "hit" out on another. And just a reminder: Norman and Beckham are now division mates, ensuring they will square off at least twice a year for the foreseeable future. Like it or not, this story will go on.
