In her usual extravagant fashion, Kim Kardashian-West has once again made it more difficult for you to please your partner on their birthday by surprising hubby Kanye West with a 38th birthday present that’s definitely better than a new sweater.
Dropping not so subtle hints on Twitter throughout the day, Kim threw an extravagant basketball themed birthday bash for Yeezy–hiring out the whole Staples Centre in LA and scouting teams filled with celebrities as well as past and present NBA players.

Kanye’s close friends Don C, Jerry Lorenzo, and Herron Preston were joined by names such as Justin Bieber, Tyga, Pusha T, and NBA stars Russell Westbrook and John Wall (to name but a few). There was an equally substantial group off the court with Kylie Jenner, John Legend, and Khloe Khardashian among the ranks.

Instagram and Twitter have been in a frenzy today as photos and videos from the game including a few of Kanye blowing out his birthday cake shaped like a NBA Championship trophy. If that wasn’t enough to permanently undermine everyone else’s gift attempts, Kim kept the basketball theme going by reportedly paying for a court to be built in their own backyard. Swish.
