    baller

    Was watching a movie. There were two guys playing golf. One of them said,"Dude I didn't know you were a baller." What would "baller" mean in this context? I might have misheard it though.

    Could it have been bawler - either one who shouts angrily or one who weeps?

    That must have been what he said. The one who shouts a lot right? Thanks for giving me a hint. Jut looked it up in a dictionary. So my next question would be. Is it possible to say "bawl him out for the mass in his room" instead of "lecture him for the mess"?

    I think "baller" is what the guy said.

    Urban Dictionary: baller
