I don't think you understand the definition of handles and dribbling ability.
Dribbling ability = being able to pull off advanced dribbling moves (multiple combination of moves, shammgods, having correct footwork/bodywork.
Handles = being able to go anywhere you want on the court, never losing your handle of the ball, not turning the ball over, every move you do is clean to perfection.


CP3 has the best handles of all time, it's not even close, and if you try to debate this fact you're exposing yourself to not knowing any basketball.

Yeah let's just forget that Iverson was averaging 4.5 turnovers per game. There's a distinct difference between being able to pull off great crossovers that require great dribbling ability and being able to control the ball which requires great handle. If you get ripped, if the ball goes off your foot, your dribble gets passed you, you don't have a great handle. In terms of a handling the ball, there's a difference between a Jamal Crawford/AI and a CP3/Nash. Unlike Nash, CP3 not only has a great handle but he pulls off the best hesitations, crossovers, and combinations you'll ever see.

But who was context?

Turnovers are not due to poor handles they're due to poor decision making. The idea that they have high turnovers being due to their ball handling ability is retarded. They have high turnovers because they make very risky passes.

Rondo has INSANE handles, and still averaged nearly 4 TO per game for a season.

I'm not all too concerned about who's playing defense. A crossover is still the same regardless of who's defending you. If Tony Allen was guarding him for that play, Felton probably would still cross him (not as bad as he did with Udonis, but he'd still get him). That wouldn't necessarily make it any better in my eyes. The move itself was nasty and that's what I'm appreciating.

Meaning it was pretty literally the best hesitation move of all time.

Iverson is also like the ... 3rd highest ppg scorer of all time? I have a hard time calling his scoring crossovers NOT the greatest.







Srsly though they literally needed to BAN Iversons crossover because it was so insane. Why do you hate Iverson so much lol, I love advanced metrics but Iverson was my favorite player of all time.

1. Iverson's extreme hesitation was always illegal because he palms the ball. I know you ball, you should know that being able to palm a ball allows you to exaggerate your crossover a lot more.

2. Iverson being a garbage (yet skilled) NBA player is irrelevant to this thread.

to be clear, carry is only when your hand is on the bottom of the ball, correct?

i was always under the impression that if the ball is spinning in your hand, its not carry. like in this gif when he brings it back.. if the ball has rotation, its legal, right???

its only carry when you "turn the ball over" from the bottom....? very inconsistent call, imo.

And Tim Hardaway didn't invent the crossover. He popularized the UTEP crossover. Might as well say that God Shammgod invented the crossover because he popularized his own crossover. You're acting as if no one from the 80s was capable of crossing the ball.

You potatoes assume that I think Raymond Felton has the best handles of all time. I think the specific crossover he did on Haslem is the best I've ever seen.

Crossover is sick, but stepping over Lue at the end takes it to another level.

yea see, since you weren't watching it in the moment...

That step over was done because Lue was supposed to be some sort of "iverson stopper" which got a lot of talk in the media and by commentators despite being a load of bullchit. lue was just an annoying little chit knat that had no business even thinking that he could stop AI, let alone actually buying into the idea. And thus, AI sonned him and the phaggot media never mentioned the idea of an iverson stopper again.

Whereas AI carried the ball, DRoses crossover was illegal in the physical sense. Straight up destroyed his own knees more than opponent ankles. Tim bug was the same. Best crossover in history, but it was a real knee grinder. Rose will be back and he will need to remove the crossover from his repertoire if he wants to have any sort of decent career.

AI's cross was ridiculous, but a lot of them were definitely illegal. Still ridiculous either way. You'd probably have to give it to him, or Timmy Hardaway for fundamental effectiveness. By today's standards his cross doesn't have the aesthetic value that woo's a crowd but it was incredibly effective.

CP3 definitely has the best handles today. Others have more aesthetic value and sometimes even a greater move set, but ball handling is about efficiency and really the only player in recent memory who can compare is a prime Nash. Guys like Irving are way too sloppy to deserve a mention.

Obviously Jordan wasn't known for his crossover, but he had some decent ones for a big guard

Alright, since this is a crossover thread, this should be posted.

Full playlist. I don't feel like going through and posting every one. Obviously these are not "greatest" but entertaining nonetheless.

yea see, since you weren't watching it in the moment...

That step over was done because Lue was supposed to be some sort of "iverson stopper" which got a lot of talk in the media and by commentators despite being a load of bullchit. lue was just an annoying little chit knat that had no business even thinking that he could stop AI, let alone actually buying into the idea. And thus, AI sonned him and the phaggot media never mentioned the idea of an iverson stopper again. From what I remember the talk in the media wasn't him being an "Iverson stopper" he was the scout Iverson for their team. He really acted the part and got the Iverson sleeve and all, kind of like a joke in practice. Regardless I was going off in that game especially when he did that move and they stole game one.

People forget L.A didn't lose one game all playoffs and Iverson ruined it for them. Although they won only one game it still was an impressive feat considering offensively it was Iverson or nothing.

^Didn't see that post, but you nailed it. Lue was taken in to act as Iverson in the practice drills and strategies, he was never considered an Iverson stopper.

actually, he was LA's supposed AI disruptor due to his quickness and annoying knat tendencies and that was specifically discussed by the media during the finals.

who gives a fuk how he trolled AI during practice. scrubs dont play prime minutes in game 1 of the NBA finals unless they're in for a reason. brb 5 mins per game throughout the playoffs, 15 mins per game in the finals. that was his purpose.


"from what I remember" ... 5 seconds of googling will bring your memory up to snuff:


While the news media have characterized Lue as a stopper, he admitted that he was never a defensive enforcer. He was a scorer at the University of Nebraska, where he started for three seasons, averaging 18.8 points as a sophomore and 21.2 as a junior.


Tyronn Lue will forever be known as the Allen Iverson stopper. Not only did Lue win a benchwarmer championship in 2000, but followed that with a “benchwarmer to hero” championship in 2001.

After three disappointing seasons due to injury and lack of playing time, Lue was probably going to find himself out of a job after the 2001 season, but his quickness proved an important factor in the 2001 finals against the Philadelphia 76ers. No one could stop Iverson, as the Lakers lost game 1 of the finals, so Phil decided to test out Lue’s quickness against him. It worked. The Lakers swept the next four games, and Lue’s benchwarmed skills were finally put on display, against a superstar in front of millions. His NBA career was saved, as Lue has since established himself as a trusty point guard.


The backcourt is in better shape as well. The addition of Tyronn Lue gives the Wizards a defensive stopper on small, quick players like Allen Iverson, as well as another true point guard to go with Chris Whitney.


When you think of that game there's only one image that stands out. The "Answer" stepping over the supposed Iverson-stopper, Tyron Lue, and nailing a 20-foot jumper, scoring his 48th point in route to ending the Lakers' undefeated run through the playoffs.


pls go.

Iverson LITERALLY crossed PRIME MJ out of his god damn sneakers.

People somehow forget that MJ came right down the court on the next play and crossed Iverson over

Did detrimental and outsider LITERALLY JUST MAKE THE BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER? Lol @ calling out an incorrect Iverson reference in front of 2 of the biggest Iverson fans on here.


Lue was known ONLY for being an "Iverson Stopper" lol @ him replicating him. He was used SPECIFICALLY for his speed and agility to slow Iverson down. Holy sht if you just googled his name and iverson, the first autocomplete that comes up?

"Tyronn Lue Iverson stopper"

Dude was a hopeless failure until he gained traction for being used as the "Iverson Stopper", hence why the step over is so iconic. You cannot stop Iverson, you can just pray to god you slow him down a little bit.

so, are you are saying that phil jackson did not have him simulate iverson in practice( right down to wearing the compression sleeve)?

'In addition, in the 2001 NBA Finals against the Philadelphia 76ers, Jackson had Tyronn Lue, a player on the Lakers team who was comparable in size and height to Sixers star Allen Iverson, wear a sock on his arm during Lakers practice to simulate Iverson's use of a compression arm sleeve as part of his regular gametime attire. Philadelphia media considered this to be a mind game tactic of Jackson's, but the main idea was to simulate what a game against Iverson is like, right down to the tattoos and cornrows (which Lue also had).'
