You can shower us with all the heat you want about Steph Curry, or James Harden, or whoever you think has the best hands in the game right now, but there’s no denying that the Boston Celtic’s Kyrie Irving deserves to be at the top of the list. If you’re not convinced, here’s a little taste of how this wizard-with-the-ball practices his ball-handling skills.
In an Instagram post yesterday, at first, it looks like Kyrie is just doing typical passing and dribbling drills on video—that is, until the camera backs up a little bit and pans down and reveals that he’s been doing the entire drill while balancing on two basketballs.
However, we know it’s been quite a while since the actual recording of the video because Kyrie still had his ‘fro, which he recently shaved into his traditional buzz cut. But that doesn’t change the fact that he’s one of the top players in the league with the best handles.
We all know he can make some magical things happen with the ball in his hands, but from time to time, he can still wow us with some surprising moves that leave us in awe.
