On Sunday, the Brooklyn Nets commemorated the 20th anniversary of Notorious B.I.G.’s death with “Biggie Night” at Barclays Center. The game, against the New York Knicks, celebrated Chris Wallace’s legacy with a special halftime ceremony featuring Puff Daddy, his mother Voletta Wallace, his widow, Faith Evans, and his children. A banner was raised, and will remain on display, sporting jersey No. 72 and lyrics from the song “Juicy”: “Spread love, it’s the Brooklyn way.” Biggie wore a jersey with “72” (the year he was born) in the music video for “Juicy.” During the ceremony Diddy referred to the late artist as the “greatest rapper of all time.” Instead of a moment of silence, Puffy led the crowd in “10 seconds of Brooklyn noise.” See clips from the game below.
