Brooklyn Nets hang Biggie Smalls banner from rafters during tribute (VIDEO)

By

The Brooklyn Nets honored Biggie Smalls — a Brooklyn native — before Sunday night’s game against the Knicks.

It was said that they had a few special things planned for #NetsBiggieNight, and they delivered. A jersey with the number “72” and “The Notorious B.I.G”  inscribed on it was hung from the rafters, and it was a pretty big deal.

Biggie’s mom — Voletta Wallace — was on the court during the ceremony, as was Sean “P Diddy” Combs.

What a night in Brooklyn, and long overdue.
