In the world of NBA ball-handling, Kyrie Irving’s name frequently stands out, and it’s not just his dribbling skills that have earned him this reputation.
Patrick Beverley, who signed with the 76ers earlier this offseason, recently shared his perspective on what makes Irving’s handles so exceptional.
On his podcast, Beverley said (h/t ClutchPoints), “With Kai, it’s not his handle though. It’s Kai’s footwork with his handle. Drop hesi, drop hesi, tween, tween, hesi, hesi pull. But he does it so much that his feet’d be ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta stop. Skeet, skeet, skeet, stop. Skeet, hesi, pull. His emergency brakes. He got the best emergency brakes in the league.”
