Lakers assistant coach Phil Handy had the opportunity to work with Kyrie Irving for four years in Cleveland, winning the franchise’s sole championship in 2016 in the process.
According to Handy, Irving the most offensively skilled player to ever play the game. His comment comes amid the trade rumors about the Lakers being interested in acquiring the superstar point guard.
“I will go on record and say this. [Kyrie Irving] is probably the most skilled player to ever play. Offensively, probably the most skilled player to ever put on basketball shoes,” Handy said on Certified Buckets podcast.
