Kim Kardashian rented out the entire Staples Center in L.A. Monday so that hubby Kanye West could celebrate his 38th birthday with his bros on the basketball court.

"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 tells E! News exclusively. "John Salley is the announcer. Houston Rockets player James Harden and rapper 2 Chainz are the coaches. John Legend sang the national anthem."

The insider adds that Justin Bieber, Tyga, Pusha T and all of Kanye's friends are playing today in addition to NBA stars Russell Westbrook and John Wall. Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Carmelo Anthony, Shaquille O'Neal and Scotty Pippen all made videos that showed up on the jumbotron.

But that's not all. Kardashian also surprised West by building a basketball court in their own backyard. The source adds, "He's obsessed with basketball."

So how much did renting out the Staples Center cost Kardashian? The source says she was able to rent out the space for a whopping $110,000.

Kardashian's sister Khloe Kardashian took to Instagram to share a pic of West's special celebration. "Kim rented out staples [expletive]!!! Him and his boys are going to ball!!!! Happy birthday Yeezy!!!!" Khloe wrote.

In the accompanying photo West holds a basketball while wearing a jersey that reads "West" on it. The rapper flashes a giant smile while surrounded by his many guy friends, who are also all wearing jerseys.
