When it comes to ball possession in the NBA, you need to have certain qualities to be the elite in this art. They need to have the speed and agility to shock the defenders and get an open look at the basket.
They are masters of basketball, manipulating their defenders into thinking they are going one way before quickly intercepting the ball back into a nasty transition into the basket and leaving their defenders in the dust.
Philadelphia 76ers legend Allen Iverson is one of those maestros, as he’s taken quite a few ankles in his NBA career and has been able to make defensemen think about what happened. The famous crossover in Iverson’s career was he wore michael jordan when he started his career.
Former NBA star Jalen Rose, now with ESPN, was asked to compile his list of top 5 ball handlers and Iverson appeared at number 4. He was joined by Isaiah Thomas, Kyrie Irving, Stephen Curry and Jamal. Crawford is on the list as Rose had a hard time making the list due to the sheer amount of talent in the game’s history.
Iverson certainly had a huge impact not only on the 76ers, but on the NBA as a whole. The fact that he is still able to participate in debates such as this one is a testament to the work he has done in the hall during his long and successful career.
