In a neighborhood basketball court setting, ESPN pays homage to the shorter ballers in the game with a re-imagined version of Skee-Lo's famous 90's-era hit "I Wish," featuring NBA Basketball footage of impressive dunks and three-pointers by Steph Curry, Chris Paul, Terry Rozier and Kyle Lowry. Skee-Lo himself also makes an appearance. The well-known line "I wish I was a little bit taller" is altered to "I wish I was a little bit smaller," while "I wish I was like 6-foot-9" is replaced with "I wish I was like 5-foot-9." The extremely tall Skee-Lo stand-in ironically proclaims that "small ballers hit the lottery today," while ESPN suggests that although life measures height, sports measure heart.
