Kim Kardashian Makeup MET Gala - H 2015

Earlier in the day, the reality star teased on Twitter that the surprise would be a major "swish."

Kim Kardashian's surprise birthday present for husband Kanye West Monday was big time -- like Staples Center big.

The loving wife teased a surprise earlier in the day on Twitter, saying it was going to be a major "swish."

Right she was. Kardashian rented out the Staples Center in Los Angeles for a day of basketball with Yeezy and his friends.

The now 38-year-old West was joined by NBA superstars Russell Westbrook and John Wall, as well as Justin Bieber, Tyga, Pusha T and others, TMZ reports. As if that weren't enough, James Harden and 2 Chainz coached from the sidelines, John Salley announced, John Legend sang the national anthem and A-Trak DJ'ed.

And there's more: Kardashian hired real NBA referees and some Laker girls to cheer. Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Carmelo Anthony, Shaquille O'Neal and Scottie Pippen all made videos that played over the jumbotron.
