Nets Honor Notorious B.I.G. With a Banner on “Biggie Night” (Pics + Vids)
The Brooklyn Nets don’t get the opportunity to celebrate their own success too often, so anytime they get the chance to celebrate the success of others, you better believe they’re going to take advantage.
On Sunday, in honor of the recent 20-year anniversary of the death of rap great Notorious B.I.G., the Nets held “Biggie Night” at the Barclays Center during their game against the New York Knicks.
Part of their celebration for the fallen Brooklyn icon included the raising of a Biggie banner to the rafters. On the banner was his name (“The Notorious B.I.G.”), the number 72 (representing the year he was born), and his popular lyrics, “Spread love, it’s the Brooklyn way.”
