A photo was recently snapped of the two arm-bumping after a recent game and it went viral.
"The look on my face, it was authentic. It wasn't made up, I didn't plan it," Pickett said.
The photo was proof that the smallest moments can have a huge impact.
"Seeing him gives him and me just as much joy as seeing my best friends," Pickett said. "We're so much alike and it really doesn't matter what the age difference is and that's really special to me, because he is my friend now."
