Duke fan implies UNC coach was subject of Notorious BIG's adultery rap

New, comments

He's got a story to tell.

Duke plays UNC tonight, and a fan brought this sign directed at UNC assistant coach and ESPN commentator Hubert Davis:

If you don't understand what's going on here, I've got a story to tell. Notorious B.I.G. had a song on his second and final album, 1997's Life After Death, called "I Got A Story To Tell," in which he... well... tells a story. He was having an affair with the girlfriend/wife of a player on the Knicks, and one day, when that player came home Biggie and his significant other were in the bedroom. After a brief moment of panic, Biggie formulates a plan: he ties her up, makes it look like a robbery, and then holds up the player at gunpoint. He leaves with a wad of cash and the athlete doesn't realize he was cheated on. But he never identifies the player, only saying it was "one of them 6'5 n****s."

Whether this story is true or not, we'll probably never know. But, as the guy points out:

However, Bomani Jones, who has established himself as the world's No. 1 journalist in the field of "I Got A Story To Tell" research, had this to say:

Jones had previously asked 1990's Knick John Starks about the song, with Starks acknowledging that it was true while denying it was about himself.
