DASHER, GA (WALB) –A retired pro-basketball player gives new meaning to the letters NBA.

Tim McCormick played in the National Basketball Association for 10 years.

On Thursday, he told students at Georgia Christian School in Lowndes County that those letters should mean "Never Be Average" to them.

McCormick is now an ESPN analyst and he works with players to improve their performance.

He told youngsters never to listen to anyone who wants to kill their dreams.

"I want kids to understand that their self esteem is something that will guide them through life not only educationally but also in their decision-making with their friends," said Tim McCormick.

He said his dad taught him at an early age to have a game plan and to focus on your dreams. He's in town for the Georgia Christian School's Benefit dinner that's Thursday night at the Rainwater Conference in Valdosta.
