Because playing a regular game of ball with his boys (Jay Z, Big Sean and Drake just to name a few) isn’t enough for Kanye West, Kim Kardashian pulled out all the stops and rented out the Staples Center so he could ball with NBA greats Russell Westbrook and John Wall for his 38th birthday. According to TMZ, the massive gift cost about $110,000.

James Harden and 2 Chainz were enlisted as coaches, John Legend to sing the national anthem and John Salley as the announcer.

And of course there were actual NBA referees and a few good Laker cheerleaders for eye candy. To seal the deal,  Kobe, Shaq, Magic and Carmelo sent Ye’ personalized birthday shout outs that played on the throughout the space.

We’re not sure if we’re impressed or offended by their obnoxious spending.
