    Imo Harden's handles are some of the best in NBA history.

    When all is said and done I believe he will go down as one of the best ball handlers ever.

    What do you think?

    Tim hardaway had insane crossover as did Iverson. As big as scrub Rafer Alston was dude had some of the best handles. Anyone remember him trolling Sasha vuyabitch all those years ago against the lakers?

    Do handles exclude Turnovers though? Then yes.

    One of the flashiest for sure.

    All great players listed above.

    I'd like to add CP3 to the list. A prime CP3 was insane.

    Edit: not sure how I missed it. Carry on

    Steve Francis had some of the best handles in the game. Now he just turns handles up.

    Harden shifts defenders and puts them on skates so easily...no doubt Rubio gets extra ankle work done after playing Harden

    How easily y'all forget:

    White Chocolate




    With my non-homer glasses on. This dude was basically the And1 mixtape pioneer before that was even thought of... and doing it on a NBA level at that.

    Who said he wasn't an option. :rolleyes:

    My comment was geared towards those saying, somehow, Steve Francis had the best handles.

    Shoo fly! Don't bother me!

    overrated. never an allstar. Flashy player, yes. Good starting PG, yes. But calling him the best ball handler of all time would be like calling Lance Stephenson the flashiest player of all time.

    Kyrie bar-none has the best handles in league history.

    Had a good view of this with @Von Rafer from the upper decks

    LOL. So how was he "forgotten"? Typical response from a jabroni that makes no sense at all.

    Theres a lot of arrogant pompous posting on here at times but you take it to another level with ignorant pompous posting.

    Good day.

    Why do they need to be all-stars to have the best handles?

    There are people on And1 mixtapes (Hot Sauce comes to mind) with better handles then some NBA players.

    Yeah he was flashy cause that was his M.O. I don't see that as being a knock on him and his handles.
