Stephen Curry or Kyrie Irving for best handles ever? Jamal Crawford begs to differ
Three-time Sixth Man of the Year winner Jamal Crawford possesses one of the best handles in the NBA today–maybe even in history. This is exactly why when he speaks about this particular subject, we need to listen.
Crawford took to Twitter to make his claim:

It’s hard to argue against that. Jamal Crawford is an authority in this matter, and if he says that the great Isiah Thomas has the best handles ever, then we are compelled to believe him. In case you missed it, here are some highlights of Thomas’ best handles:
One of the best handles in NBA history!

Thomas entered the NBA in 1981 as the second overall pick. He spent his entire 13-year career with the Detroit Pistons, making him one of, if not the greatest player in franchise history.
Isiah is a 12-time All-Star, a five-time All-NBA team member, a two-time All-Star MVP, and a one-time Finals MVP. He was at the helm for the Pistons during their historic back-to-back NBA title runs in 1989 and 1990.
Despite his diminutive size, the 6-foot-1 point guard was one of the toughest players in league history, so much so that he pretty much embodied the Bad Boys Pistons era of the late 1980s to early 1990s.
Needless to say, Thomas is an all-time great. For all of his contributions to the sport, he was enshrined into the Hall of Fame in 2000.
