If you’re my age, Biggie Smalls’ “A Story to Tell” generates much nostalgia and is probably regarded by you as one of the best stories told in hip-hop. But perhaps I’m naïve, because I simply thought it was just another random make-believe, amusing story told by a rapper. Something that was very commonplace. Apparently, Biggie’s run-in with a player on the Knicks was true.
John Starks was a guest on Highly Questionable today with Dan Le Batard and Bomani Jones and he was asked about the validity of that story. Starks was a member of the Knicks at that time and he confirmed that it was true. He was also quick to point out that it wasn’t about him, either.
