List Rules Vote up the players who are the best with the ball in their hands.

Who are the best ball handlers currently in the NBA? Certainly, this list includes some of the best ball handlers playing right now, and potentially some of the top NBA players of all time. Check out these lists of best current dunkers and best active scorers, along with the best (worst) NBA floppers playing today

The top ball handlers who are currently playing in the NBA are certainly among the overall top current NBA players too (James Harden, Kyrie Irving, Stephen Curry, and Chris Paul come to mind immediately). 

The highly skilled NBA players on this list can make or break a team's performance on the court. They are usually quick dribblers who have sick crossovers and can Euro step around their defenders with ease. These ankle breakers are experts at changing directions and hesitation moves.

Vote for the current NBA ball handlers that you think are the most important, key players for their respective teams, and if your favorite player isn't listed, add him. You can also re-rank this list of NBA players with the best handles in any order you want.
