NBA 2K20: All of the players with the best handles in MyTeam

Is there a better way to gain attention than breaking ankles? These guys will do it best.

by Remy Cabache

Is there anything more satisfying in basketball than breaking someone’s ankles? I think not. The same goes for NBA 2K.

Having unbelievable handles is an enormous advantage, so long as you can control them, and having a player on your MyTeam who you can rely on to embarrass people, create open shots and drives, and just have fun with, is well worth it.

Which players can do that for you? Here are the players with the best handles in MyTeam.

Note: I am excluding the Collector Level Rewards Dwayne Wade, because he has 99 on almost everything.


Kyrie Irving, Free Agents 1 (86 OVR)

Ball Handle: 99

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Irving is number one of this list, and he isn’t even nearly the highest rated card overall on this list – let alone highest rated version of himself.

Obviously his 99 ball handle stands out, but he also has 92 speed with ball, 98 shot mid, 96 driving layup and 96 hands, among many other ratings in the 90s or high 80s, this Irving card at 86 overall is ideal if you’re looking for someone to dazzle with his handles.

Of course, you’ll only have him for five games, though.

Jamal Crawford, Triple Threat Rewards (94 OVR)

Ball Handle: 98

If you’re looking for the handles along with a higher overall than Irving, this may be your guy.

The Knicks SG isn’t the same playmaker as Irving, obviously, but when it comes to combining scoring with handles Crawford is a beast. With his 93 shot close, 93 shot mid, 89 shot 3pt and 94 driving layup, Crawford’s handles will be giving him open looks for days.


Kyrie Irving, Nets Moments (94 OVR)

Ball Handle: 98

Here he is again. However, he only has 45 more total attributes than his Free Agents card, but you will be able to use him in as many games as you want.

He still boasts 93 shot close, 89 shot 3pt, 96 driving layup, 96 hands, 90 passing accuracy and 88 speed with ball. Add that to his very impressive set of badges, including HOF Ankle Breaker, Handles for Days and Tight Handles. If you’re looking for a guy to shake defenders out of their shoes, it is hard to go anywhere but Kyrie Irving.

’00 Jason Williams, Triple Threat Rewards (93 OVR)

Ball Handle: 98

White Chocolate. One of the flashiest players to play in the NBA, it should, again, be no surprise he has crazy good handles in game.

Overall he is a beast, too. 90 shot mid, 95 passing accuracy, 94 passing vision, 98 passing IQ, 98 hands, 92 pick & roll defense and 89 driving layup mean he has stand out ratings in most areas of the game. Add that to HOF Flashy Passer, Needle Threader, Pass Fake Maestro, Tight Handles and Unpluckable, and Gold Ankle Breaker among many more, White Chocolate will bring all the “oooo’s!” to your game.

’82 Isiah Thomas, Pink Diamonds Rewards 1 (96 OVR)

Ball Handle: 97

By far the best overall card of this group, he is filthy.

His 96 OVR rating is propped up by 86 inside scoring, 88 defending, 93 athleticism and 97 playmaking. 95 shot close, 94 speed, 97 passing accuracy, 97 driving layup, 99 hands, 98 shot contest and 97 driving layup are just some of his outstanding ratings that make this guy almost unguardable in the right hands.
