Roy Hibbert left the court recently to make a return to the third grade on behalf of the NBA Dream Big initiative.

The Indiana Pacers man surprised kids at the Paramount School of Excellence in Indianapolis before getting involved in the typical activities of the third grade class.

After taking his seat in class, the 7' 2" center indulges in a bit of finger painting before using one of his new teammates as a shield during a friendly game of dodgeball - he is a pretty big target after all. 

And finally, with the class announcing their dreams include everything from dragon trainer to a vet/tattoo artist, the 2008 draft pick revealed he has only one ambition of his own...

To win an NBA Championship. 

With the Pacers currently top of the Eastern conference with a 38-10 record he will be coming 2014 will finally be the year his dream comes true.

Hibbert's return to education is set to air on US television tonight.
