Brooklyn’s Barclays Center will be the setting for the second ever clash between celebrity owners Justin Timberlake (Grizzlies) and Jay-Z (Nets). The game played twice a year between the Eastern and Western Conference teams has been nicknamed the “Suit and Tie” Classic.
The Grizzlies defeated the Nets, 101 – 77 at the NBA’s first “Suit and Tie” Classic at FedExForum in Memphis on January 26, 2013.
The February 24 game was recently moved to national TV (ESPN) and is the first “Suit and Tie” Classic since Jay-Z and JT announced they would be going on tour together this summer.
Can Jay-Z get his first win over Justin Timberlake in Brooklyn’s first ‘Suit and Tie’ Classic?
UPDATE: The Grizzlies defeated the Nets, 76– 72 at the “Suit and Tie” Classic Vol 2 at Timberlake is now 2-0 against Jay-Z in the NBA.
