Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic: PG Tysheem "The Dream" Pickett New 2020 Star

Tysheem Pickett, PG - PSA Cardinals 2020

Tysheem Pickett comes at you full speed out of the Boogie Down Bronx – the shifty/rangy point guard lit up the Basketball Spotlight Tip Off Classic this weekend and he has done similar work all season long. Pickett who has improved all aspects of his game continues to impress each time we have had the opportunity to see him. Pickett is one of a few of a last of a dying breed – a pass first PG who pushes the ball well in the open court, has terrific vision, and his passing is next level special in the open court as well as in half court sets.   The straw that stirs the PSA Cardinal (formerly Team Scan) drink; Pickett is an outstanding athlete who affects the game with his length, assertiveness, and IQ.  

One of the few PG’s who can dramatically impact a game without scoring a single point – Pickett has learned the secret of making the players around him better at a young age.  He is able to take the talents of the others on the court and make them exponentially better simply by playing alongside him.  The Cardinals who have appeared in several championship games in the early part of the season; again made big noise in the recent Basketball Spotlight Tip Off making it to the Final Four prior to a tough 1 point loss to a tough NJ team 38-37 – the last possession was Pickett at his best as he set up and blew past his man getting into the teeth of the defense where he was fouled but didn’t get the call causing the Cardinal to come up a little short in their quest for a rematch with eventual champions Slam City Elite; another team who has had trouble controlling and containing the solid NYC lead guard.

A solid defender who is aggressive on the ball, plays the passing lane, and speaks the game as well as he plays it - Tysheem can guard the position he is a two way 94 foot player whose motor seems to run on premium fuel.     The scary part is that Pickett could be a prolific scorer if he wanted to with the tools he has to work with and he can and will get his team a bucket when he needs to with an array of creative finishing moves.  You remove Pickett from the Cardinals and they will cease to fly he is that much of a difference maker and that good of a player.  If you respect the game and love the purity of the point guard position you must respect Tysheem Pickett a new star in the 2020 class that you certainly will be hearing a lot more from!
