Re: Best Ball Handler in history of NBA?

one of the hardest things to argue, because so many players have such effective off-hands

Unless we shooting jumpers with them, how can you say, who goes left better than who...when so many players do it so well...and over like 60 years of NBA ball

this thread should be universal-ton

Re: Best Ball Handler in history of NBA?

J. Williams cannot handle crap, he carries and travels just like AI.

Isiah or Tim Hardway were good, KJ, Stockton ( although he carried later in his carrer too, I guess if you let them they'll do it ).
Anyway, nobody from 1995 on qualifies, because they all caryy all the time. That's not ball handling. It is still against the rules, they just don't call it, because they don't care, as long as you pay to watch, who cares about the game.

Maravich, Cousy, Alston, or Shammgod. No joke on Shammgod. Technically he got in the league, and he has one of the best handles ever

Can you guys please use the History forum? If your thread title or main question contains "in the history" chances are it's going to end up there regardless.
