NBA players believe Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving is on a whole another level when it comes to ball handling.

It is a requirement for every player in the NBA, especially those who play as guards, to be a good ball handler. But players who possess elite ball-handling skills usually use it as a way for them to score more points, especially since it makes it a bit easier for them to get past their defenders.

Most of today's players who've earned the reputation as elite ball handlers have either become an All-Star or at least a crowd favorite. However, there will always be that conversation on who's the best NBA player at handling the basketball.

The Athletic's Sam Amick recently asked 127 players to vote on who they think is the best ball handler in the league, and to the surprise of almost no one, Irving came out on top while Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry ranked second.

Who’s the best ballhandler? (127 votes)

Kyrie Irving (77.1%)
Steph Curry (7.4%)
Kemba Walker (6.2%)
James Harden (2.3%)
Chris Paul (1.5%)
C.J. McCollum, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Jamal Crawford, Dion Waiters, Paul George, Ben Simmons (1%; one vote)
De’Aaron Fox (0.5%; split vote)

We all know that Kyrie Irving is one of the best point guards in the league, but the fact that he almost had a 70 percent lead over Curry speaks volumes to how good he really is at handling the ball. Steph isn't a mediocre dribbler either, and Even Kemba Walker, James Harden and Chris Paul are elite when it comes to this aspect.

But the players have spoken. Uncle Drew is a superior being when it comes to the art of ball handling.
