March 9th was the 20th anniversary of the death of rap legend The Notorious B.I.G., who was shot and killed in 1997.
Notorious B.I.G.'s easily the city of Brooklyn's most iconic and influential rapper, and although it's been so long since he was taken from this world, he's still alive in the hearts of many, especially all those who attend the Barclays Center for basketball games.
Since the Nets franchise moved to Brooklyn in 2012, Notorious B.I.G.'s music has been a staple at basketball games, whether it be during the game or during breaks in the game.
Seeing as basketball and Biggie go hand in hand, it makes perfect sense that the Nets decided to honour Christopher Wallace with 'Biggie Night' against the Knicks on Sunday.
Once the banner ceremony was over, Biggie's mom spoke to the crowd on hand.
Aside from the incredible banner ceremony, there was a pop up shop with Biggie shirts fans could buy to honour the rapper.
The Nets' Twitter account was also all in on Biggie Night, as you can see:
The Nets won, but more importantly, the city of Brooklyn and the basketball world honoured a legend in the best way possible.
