The Brooklyn jersey features the classic Coogi sweater design that Biggie was known for wearing. This is not the first time the Nets celebrated Biggie’s legacy. His name hangs on a banner in the rafter right next to Jay-Z’s.
Told these are indeed Brooklyn’s City Edition Jersey’s…

The Nets aren’t the only team paying tribute to a deceased legend from their hometown through the City Edition jerseys. The Minnesota Timberwolves will honor Prince with purple Timberwolves jerseys.
