a) selling 8 balls or buying 8 balls to flip an extreme profit by selling by the gram

b) going really fast either in a vehicle, on foot, or anything with wheels. (short for hauling balls or hauling ass)

c) playing basketball

d) crying eyes out

e) now mistakenly misused by nearly everyone especially the kids on urbandictionary for a synonym of "living the good life", "living in wealth or riches", AND the worst of all "the act of being fly" which derived from the life of selling 8 ball's of cocaine on the street in order to make lots of money. ballers may sometimes live the good life with their riches and actin fly BUT for the most part many ballers only appear that way because they spend their money on new shoes and chains and may even eventually end up in jail. so all the new age wannabes who don't even know where the word came from use it for anything they can think of to describe something that is dope, cool, and/or awesome to them.
a) rick ross thinks he's ballin but he really isn't

Living a life of extreme wealth and flaunting it. Sadly enough, young people from not so wealthy families think its cool to blow off thousands of dollars on jewlry and clothes instead of trying to move out of the ghetto and finding a better way of life.
