Kim Rented Out The Staples Center For Kanye's Birthday Basketball Game (Photos)
It will make you angry how wealthy Kim and Kanye are.
Kanye West turned 38 on Monday, and Kim threw him the craziest birthday party of all time — like, rented-out-the-Staples-Center-to-host-a-private-Pro-Am-basketball-game level crazy.
Speculation of an over-the-top event started on Monday morning when Kim tweeted she had an extravagant — and probably basketball-themed — surprise for Kanye in honor of his birthday.
Kanye's bday today is gonna be a major SWISH!!! I planned the craziest surprise! Will share later! Sooooo excited!!!!!!

Yes, “slam dunk” would have made a bit more sense than “swish,” but this is actually a pretty good joke for Kim. Good job, Kim.
What was that surprise? A private basketball game for Kanye and his friends at the Staples Center, of course.
Let that assemblage of words take a second to sink in.
TMZ reports the game featured NBA stars John Wall and Russell Westbrook, as well as Tyga, Justin Bieber and Pusha T.
James Harden and 2 Chainz coached the teams, and actual NBA refs officiated. John Legend even sang the national anthem.
On top of that, Magic Johnson, Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant, Shaq and Scottie Pippen all recorded videos for Kanye that played on the stadium's Jumbotron.
