Coming from a song "We Fly High" and in the background they say "ballin" Now whenever someone or somebody does something good, they now say "BALLIN" putting their hand up in the air like they are shooting a basketball. Now this word doesnt have to just be said after something good is done, I have heard people just say ballin because they like to piss people off or they just like saying it. Now, I am totally fine with people saying it, but I feel like I want to rip their faces off when they keep saying it because it "sounds cool". So please, keep the term "ballin" said under very appropriate conditions.
A kid runs down and hits a buzzer shot at the end of the half.

Kid 1: Ballin...

WRONG USE OF "BALLIN"
A person gets out of their car and starts walking into a store and for some reason starts saying "ballin"

Person: BALLIN BALLIN BALLIN
Person: BALLIN BALLIN BALLIN

Two minutes later that man had his face ripped off by the author of this story.

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

b) i was ballin through that intersection

c) we were just outside ballin, shootin hoops

d) shaniqua was straight ballin when she found out her man was cheatin and playin her

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