Kim Kardashian made headlines this week for renting out the Los Angeles Staples Center for husband Kanye West's 38th birthday. 

The rapper got to shoot hoops with some of his closest friends as the Kardashian-Jenner fam looked on and of course snapped some pics for Instagram.

"Kim rented out the Staples Center so Kanye and his boys could play an NBA-style game with real refs and Laker girls!" a source told E! News exclusively.

"John Salley [was] the announcer. Houston Rockets player James Harden and rapper 2 Chainz [were] the coaches. John Legend sang the national anthem." 

The insider added that celebs like Justin Bieber, Tyga, Pusha T and all of Kanye's friends played in addition to NBA stars Russell Westbrook and John Wall. And wait, that's not all! 

Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Carmelo Anthony, Shaquille O'Neal and Scotty Pippen all made videos that showed up on the jumbotron.

Kim also surprised her rapper man by building a basketball court in their backyard. 

So how much did renting out good ol' Staples Center cost? $110,000. 

Sister Khloé Kardashian posted on Instagram about the celebration, saying "Kim rented out staples b*tch!!! Him and his boys are going to ball!!!! Happy birthday Yeezy!!!!"

In the accompanying photo, Kanye held a basketball, wearing a jersey that read "West" on it, and flashing a happy birthday smile with his many guy friends, also in jerseys. 

Now with Kim Kardashian's net worth at $65 million, spending $110,000 may seem like chump change. That's like spending $110 on someone's birthday if you made $65,000 a year. 

It may seem pretty light of an amount for the reality start to spend, but the friends and family she got together for her basketball-loving beau were priceless. 

Before the basketball party, Kim wished Kanye a happy birthday on Instagram saying, "Happy Birthday to my best friend in the entire world! You are the most amazing husband & dad! You inspire me every single day! You make all of your dreams reality & it's fascinating to be by your side & watching it all happen! You have a heart of gold! Have the best birthday ever! #SWISH."
