Knicks' Kyle O'Quinn posterizes Redskins' Josh Norman in celebrity game

Washington RedskinscornerbackJosh Norman is known for locking up opposing receivers on Sundays in the fall. Slowing down 250-pound NBA players on the hardwood? Well, that's a different story.

As New York Knicks center Kyle O'Quinn came lumbering down the court during Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor's Bam Bam's Spring Jam Annual Celebrity Basketball Game this weekend in Norfolk, Virginia, Norman decided to risk it all by challenging the NBA veteran at the rim.

Let's just say this matchup between the 6-foot-10 O'Quinn and 6-foot Norman did not go well for the little guy.

As Norman jumps to block the shot, O'Quinn stuffs a tomahawk jam down his throat for an intense cross-sport posterization. The public address announcer in the Ted Constant Convocation Center appears to warn Norman before the play even occurs, repeatedly shouting "No!" into the microphone as the football player tries his hand as a rim protector against the former Norfolk State Spartan.

O'Quinn then slaps his hand against a padded table behind the basket in excitement, startling a cheerleader seated nearby.

Sometimes the receiver makes the catch and sometimes the NBA player scores the bucket. Maybe Norman will reconsider going for this particular interception next time.
