Richard Jefferson recently said that Kyrie Irving has the best handles ever as well. The things Irving can do with the ball in his hands are magical.
Irving was only able to play in 20 games for the Nets this season. He averaged 27.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 6.4 assists while shooting 47.8 percent from the field, 39.4 percent from beyond the arc and 92.2 percent from the free-throw line.
Kyrie dealt with a serious shoulder injury which forced him to miss a lot of time. The Nets guard came back and then hurt his knee, while his shoulder ailment came back as well.
Irving eventually decided to shut his season down and get surgery on his shoulder. It turned out to be the smart move since COVID-19 has taken over the world.
Since entering the NBA as the No.1 overall pick back in 2011, Irving has averaged 22.4 points, 3.7 rebounds and 5.7 assists with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics and Nets. The shot he hit over Stephen Curry and the Warriors in Game 7 of the 2016 Finals will be remembered forever.
