Allen Iverson, one of the most devastating ball-handlers in basketball history, is passing the torch.

In a Showtime documentary that will premiere on Saturday, The Answer said Stephen Curry and Kyrie Irving both have a better handle than he did in his heyday.

Bleacher Report provided a graphic of the quote.

It’s a very humble proclamation, but let’s be clear about one thing—nobody has ever been nastier than Iverson. Take a look at some of A.I.’s slickest crossovers:

Chef Curry and Uncle Drew are wizardly in their own right, though. They give modern-day defenders the same kind of nightmares that Iverson gave his opponents.

It’s impossible to place anyone’s handle above Iverson’s, but Curry and Irving might be the only ones worthy of being in the same conversation.
