Ever since entering the league, Kyrie Irving has been regarded as one of the best ball handlers. And in recent years, many say he’s the best in that category, along with Steph Curry. Steph is no doubt crafty with the ball, but his handling is not quite of the same caliber of Kyrie.
Both Paul Millsap and Eric Gordon are fans of Kyrie, apparently. Millsap feels Kyrie is the best ball handler in the game:
“Hands down, Kyrie has the best ball-handling skills that we have in our league,” Atlanta Hawks All-Star forward Paul Millsap said. “The way he reads defenses, the way he reads your feet, it’s unbelievable … His biggest asset is his creativity. He is one of the most creative point guards we have.”
But Rockets shooting guard Eric Gordon took it a step further and said Kyrie may be the best all time. Bold statement.
“Kyrie has the best handle of all time,” said Houston Rockets guard Eric Gordon. “Very creative and uses different motions, as well.”
