look up any word, like colorful friendship:
1.) You've got bad ass game on the basketball court

2.) Making money

The source of 1. is obvious; 2. come from selling rock or crack cocaine. You start making good money when your dealing with balls (8-ball) and up, which is a half a quarter ounce, or 3.5 grams. A half a b (1.75 grams) is the lowest on this scale and what low end dealers might grab. On the street a half a b goes for $100-$125, which you can convert to about $170. The turnover is not extremely high, but the rate you sell it at is as you can easily turnover that amount in 20 minutes or less. The more balls you deal with, or sell, the higher the turnover.

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

e) i got some nice new air force 1 kicks bro, now i'm ballin
