LOS ANGELES, June 9 (UPI) -- Maybe your parents rented out a skating rink for your birthday as a kid, but your wife probably hasn't rented out the Staples Center.

But for Kanye West's 38th birthday, wife Kim Kardashian West rented out the 19,000 seat Los Angeles arena. Kanye and friends played in a basketball game with an East team facing a West team. Teams were made up of friends and celebrities, including Justin Bieber, Pusha T, and Tyga. Washington Wizards star John Wall also attended the celebration, according to E! Online.
