Though Kanye West's album, SWISH, didn't debut during Apple Music's launch today, he's still getting some shots up, as Kim Kardashian rented out Staples Center in Los Angeles for his birthday. Via a picture from Khloe Kardashian, it looks like Kim organized for Kanye and all of his boys to play some pickup basketball in the arena, with full jerseys and everything. The teams reportedly consisted of Russell Westbrook, John Wall, Justin Bieber, Tyga, with James Harden and 2 Chainz coaching, and John Legend singing the national anthem. Legend also sang happy birthday to Yeezy, A-Trak handled the turntables, and the Laker Girls were in attendance.

Earlier in the day, Kim teased that Kanye's birthday surprise would be a major #SWISH, and it seems like a safe bet that that is the case. 'Ye and Kim should really thank the Lakers though for being so bad this year that they're not playing basketball and the arena being available. So here's to a happy birthday to Kanye, and lets just hope that you shoot better than Steph Curry did last night in the NBA Finals.
