Just as in basketball, a pick is when a defensive player is cut off from the person she/he is defending, usually when that person runs so close to another player that the defender is "picked off." Unlike basketball, it is illegal, mainly because it can be dangerous when players are running at top speed. If a pick is called, play stops and the defender is allowed to catch up. If the offensive player that did the picking catches the disc, they have to send it back to the thrower and the defender is allowed to catch up.
