If you watched the NBA All-Star game this year, you may have noticed a shorter player with a headband nailing outside shots and going toe-to-toe with the game’s elite.

Well, that shorter player was Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas, who is listed as a likely generous 5'9". Though Thomas’s height hasn’t stopped him from producing at an All-Star level—he’s averaging over 21 points per game—that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t like to tack on a couple extra inches.

Fortunately, it seems as if he’s found the perfect solution—a trip to outer space!

Watch: Kid crosses up Kristaps Porzingis, scores, dabs

Thomas may have to log a few “DNP: Growing in space” tags for the Celtics, but it will be worth it in the long run.
