March 13 (UPI) -- Diddy, Lil Kim, and The Notorious B.I.G.'s family took half court Sunday to honor the late rapper.

The Notorious B.I.G. earned his own banner at the Barclays Center during the Brooklyn Nets' 120-112 win against the New York Knicks.

During the ceremony, Diddy asked fans for '10 seconds of Brooklyn noise' instead of silence. Faith Evans, Voletta Wallace, and Biggie's daughter and son were in attendance. Ice Cube, Charles Oakley, Offset from Migos, Cardi B, and A$AP Ferg also attended the Nets' Biggie Night ceremony.

Biggie's former DJ, DJ Enuff was spinning his tracks halftime. Old school hip-hop was played throughout the arena Sunday on the 20th anniversary of Biggie's death.

A No. 72 banner with the title "The Notorious B.I.G." now hangs in the rafters next to a Jay Z banner. Biggie's banner reads: "Spread love. It's the Brooklyn way."

Biggie's mother, Ms. Wallace, spoke pregame in front of a full @barclayscenter crowd. #NetsBiggieNight
