Generally, but I'm curious about how many posts it'll take for a few players to be mentioned. I'll post mine later.

No one's gonna remember the best handles from each position of all time, and no one's got time to google or youtube all the best ball handlers in every position.

This is like a damn homework assignment.

Default Re: Top 5 GOAT handles by position?

This is tough because I want to name the best players with the best handles. But you know some scrub/average player in the NBA had some insane handles and the rest of their game wasn't good. Someone like Tinsley or Kenny Anderson had the ball on the string.

Not in Order and incomplete

PG:
1. Isaiah Thomas
2. Jason Williams
3. Tim Hardaway
4. Chris Paul
5. Bob Cousy/Pete Maravich

SG:
1. Allen Iverson
2. Jamal Crawford
3. Tracy McGrady
4.
5.

SF:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.

PF:
1. Pau Gasol
2. Chris Webber
3. Anthony Mason
4.
5.

C:
1. David Robinson
2. Hakeem Olajuwon
3.
4.

Default Re: Top 5 GOAT handles by position?

I count a good handle as having good ball protection, being able to beat your man without relying on pure quickness (i.e. deft fakes) and being able to create space for shots or passing lanes. These are only players I've seen in my lifetime or seen extensive video of

Pg:
1 - Iverson
2 - CP3
3 - Jayson Williams
4 - Tim Hardaway
5 - Nash

Sg:
1 - Wade
2 - Kobe
3 - MJ
4 - Crawford
5 - T-Mac

Sf:
1 - Pippen
2 - LeBron
3 - Bird
4 - Pierce
5

Pf:
1 - Odom
2 - Barkley
3 - KG
4 - Pau Gasol
5 - Blake Griffin

C:
1 - Shaq
2 - Noah
3 - D-Rob
4 - Bill Russell
5

As much as I dislike Wade, the way he splits the double is just beautiful to watch. He almost never gets stripped and has a good head/shoulder fake on his crossover. I wanted to put Jamal Crawford higher for his shake n bake because I've never seen anyone else do it but aside from that everyone higher than him has a better handle

Good shout out to Blake Griffin. I don't know about top 5, but the guys handles are underrated.

Cousins is the best ball handling C ever that I seen, ain't seen no one with his creativity and feel for it

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZq7K9NgGLI (between Teauges legs)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ScX0AvRHSAY (between Chalmers legs)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9ecgDb4Kzk (x over on Camby)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93Rd94Vz8hk (full court x-over and behind the back finish with left)

Dude can do unreal shit with the ball, he gets more ankle breakers than any C in the L right now hes basically a massive SF.
