Allen Iverson never lacked confidence while playing the game of basketball and with confidence, he made a statement that certainly had some taking a step back.

Most would consider Allen Iverson the individual with the some of the best handles in the history of the game.  He was smooth, slick and innovative with cross overs to behind the back creativity.

Now Iverson is saying Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers and league MVP Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors have better handles than he did as a player.

That's certainly high praise from AI.

Apparently a big fan of the two young stars game and especially the dynamics handles they have.

Allen Iverson will be appearing on a Showtime Sports Special this Saturday on Showtime with Mike Hill.
