Brooklyn Nets To Hold “Biggie Night”

The Nets will hold “Biggie Night” during an upcoming game in Brooklyn.

When the Brooklyn Nets take on the New York Knicks this coming Sunday, March 12, those in attendance will take part in celebrating the life of the late Christopher Wallace, aka Notorious B.I.G., aka Biggie Smalls. 

The Sunday evening game, which will go down at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, will serve as the platform for “Biggie Night”.

According to the New York Daily News, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Biggie’s mother, Voletta Wallace will be in attendance for the game. The children of the late, Brooklyn-born-and-bred rapper, as well as Mark Pitts and Wayne Barrow are also invited to take part in the evening’s festivities.

Although specific details have yet to be revealed, the events will feature pre-game and halftime ceremonies dedicated to B.I.G.

Official word on “Biggie Night” also came via the official Twitter account for the Brooklyn Nets.

“Sunday’s game vs the Knicks will honor the 20th anniversary of Biggie Smalls’ passing,” the Brooklyn Nets tweeted yesterday (March 8).

News of “Biggie Night” comes as fans around the world pay respect to the Brooklyn wordsmith on the 20th anniversary of his death.

Puff Daddy, Faith Evans, and Fabolous serve as just a handful of artists who have paid respect to Biggie this week.
