Voiceover

Give me a court 
Give me a pair of shoes 
Give me an MC 
Give me a hypeman 
Give me a crowd 
Give me some competition 
And...it looks like I'll need a teammate 
Give me a press, I'll break it 
This is reasonable 
A pocket, I'll pick it. Your weakness, I'll exploit it. 
Now, give me a replay 
Give me the draft 
Give me the first round 
Give me a handshake 
Give me a contract 
Give me KD 
(Dong Dong and KD, what a combo) 
Give me Kobe 
Give me a nickname 
Give me a line to cross 
Give me the spotlight 
Give me... 
Don't give me fame 
I'll earn that 
Give me the ball 
 
 
 
(Lyrics) Martin had a dream
