Kyrie Irving is one of the most unstoppable players in the NBA from his superior dribbling skills. Irving’s bag of tricks includes quick crossovers, hesitation moves and hard dribbles that can lead to step-back or step-side jumpers.
“He is able to use both hands and he’s shifty and crafty,” Steph Curry said. “He changes speeds to keep people off-balance. Perhaps the best way to put it into words, he has an uncanny kind of ability to go one way, stop on a dime, right to left, left to right, whichever, and still be on balance and get by you. It’s unpredictable. You just don’t know which way he is going.”
I will leave you with a great article from ‘The Undefeated’ breaking down Irving’s handling skills and how he became the best dribbler in the NBA.
