2021 point guard Lorenzo Washington looks up to Kyrie Irving

Lorenzo Washington is a 15-year old point guard from Middletown, New York. Last time we checked on Washington he was a 5’1, 7th grader looking to make a name for himself on the national scene. Washington is now 5’9 working hard everyday to gain some serious exposure.

“I want to be the best point guard in my class nationally, I also want to receive at least one division I offer by the end of the year.” Said Washington.

Washington is currently a freshman at The Patrick School in Hillside, New Jersey. He models his game after Patrick School alumni and current Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving.

“I am a score first point guard who can make everyone on my team better.” Washington Said. “Kyrie is my favorite player because he is ungaurdable, he can shoot, dribble and finish around the rim.”

When you watch Washington play you can definitely see flashes of Kyrie in his game. He is super quick, has a tight handle and can finish around the rim, even around larger defenders. In transition he makes the right plays whether that is attacking the rim or passing to the open man.

Obviously Washington has a long way to go before he’s on Kyrie’s level, he is aware of this and working hard each day to achieve his goal.

“After school I hit the weight room to train and take care of my body, once I’m done with that I’m in the gym working on my game.” Said Washington.

Washington has shown much improvement in his game over the past few years. It will be interesting to see how he develops over the summer playing with his AAU squad the New York Renaissance.

After high school Washington would ideally like to play college ball at either Duke or Kentucky.
