Jamal Crawford has name NBA legend Isiah Thomas as the player with the best handles in the history of the league. The Detroit Pistons icon is widely considered a top 3 point guard ever but Crawford raised the bar while praising Thomas for his skills handling the ball. In a league that has seen Kyrie Irving, Stephen Curry, Chris Paul and Crawford himself, the veteran player went with Thomas on this one.

In recent hours, Ballislife shared a video showing some highlights of Zeke; somebody tagged Crawford in the video and he made the claim, picking Thomas as the player with the best handlers in the history of the game.

Crawford is well known for having great handlers, too; it's not a coincidence they call him 'J-Crossover,' so when he talks about this, we know his opinion matters a lot. Isiah is seen as one of the best players in his position, even though he probably received more hate than love during his career. Still, his plays are there to see and Crawford is ready to let people know that Mr. Wonderful had the best handlers in NBA history.

Thomas finished his career as a 2x NBA champion, 12x All-Star and probably the greatest players in Detroit Pistons history.
