I don't think Curry is even close to top 2-3 ball-handlers in the league. His handles are nice, but not very tight and a lot of clips we've seen on highlight reels is caused by his shooting ability - not handles by itself.
Handles should be judged on how well you can get to spots you want to be in. Curry isn't ATG dribbler in traffic.
Yes. Major knock of Curry's offensive game is he is very turnover prone in traffic be it dribbling it off or making a poor pass off from a double team. He is still very good dribbler no doubt but his finishing ability far excels importance of dribbling ability in generally...
No, Curry's not particularly turnover prone. He averages 3 turnovers per game which is right in line with what most other star primary ballhandlers average. It's less than Lebron and a lot less than Harden and Westbrook and those guys haven't been labelled as turnover prone.
