you're trying way too hard he shouldnt even be in the discussion. It is deron williams imo. He has the best handles in the league.

Rose, Williams, CP3... who knows... hard to say when there's no stats to display how effective a crossover is. Personally I like watching Rose's crossover because of the aggression behind it.

explain Deron's turnover rate then. If you have paid attention to his game over his career, you know part of his problem is losing the ball on crossovers at times. Chris Paul is probably the best ball handler in the NBA of all elite players.

Irving is another great choice.

while you maybe right, about him losing he handle on his crossovers some times. The turnover rate accounts passes too. Can use stats to tell how good someone handles are. steve nash had some of the best handles in the league but his turnovers were always high. still sticking to deron williams having the best handles, not necessary ball security(part of handles but not all of it) Deron williams can dribble through traffic like no other.

Oh I am aware of that, the only reason I brought it up is that over the years, Deron has struggled at times with his crossover, he keeps it very high, and for years would use it right in the proximity of his defender, getting the ball knocked loose a lot. He is an excellent ball handler, but he makes mistakes. There are some guys who simply don't, Paul being one of them.

oh, I definitely agree with paul, you dont ever see him even look sloppy with his handles, his ball security is definitely best in the league.

Hawkeye15
08-06-2012, 03:42 PM
lmao wade has better handles then rose????

it's "best crossover", not best handles. There is a clear difference. Which is why I am calling out anyone who says Deron. It's literally been a part of his game that has caused him headaches over his career. It's better now then it was his first 4 seasons, but he still gets picked or has the ball poked away on his crossovers if he keeps it up high.

Agreed, I didnt get to see all the games. It's hard to watch every game but I watched alot of them. Yea, he is though and it's amazing how much space he created on his crossovers. The link i posted wasnt the carrying crossovers he did early in his career either those were straight up ankle brankers. He broke more ankles when they started calling palming violations then before they had the rule.

"Handles" includes spins, hesitations, size-ups, ball control, and maybe ball fakes as well. Crossovers are a large part of handles but don't encompass all of it.

you got it flipped bruh. a crossover is a move to deceive your opponent making him think you are going one way then you "cross the ball over" going the other way. Handles is ball control. I'm sure you got the move down just like all the 1,000,000,000 ballers out there, but get your baller terminology correct.:clap:

Edit: p.s. AI has the best crossover all-time. Currently, It would be a tie between Dwill and Jamal Crawford.

Come on is there even a debate here..Deron Williams best handles in the game

Which is weird because in a poll this year 74 percent of NBA players in Sports Illustrated said CP3 was the best ballhandler in the game.


Jamal Crawford has the best crossover in the game, CP3 the best overall handles. Awesome they are on same team too! Can't wait.

The best ball handler in the league.. Chris Paul, closely followed by Kyrie Irving.

Also, HANDLES are your ball HANDLING skills. It's not just crossovers, it's how good you are at dribbling the basketball as a WHOLE. It compensates, crossovers, in and outs, spin moves etc. and general ball security and being able to keep your dribble alive.
