    Default "J.R. Smith is not a good ball handler."

    Breen has said this at least a couple of times after J.R. Smith lost control of the ball. For some reason I thought he was. Did I think so because of J.R.'s athleticism and him being a guard? Some plays where he got fancy with the ball? Or was Breen being too critical?

    Yes, he's not a great ball handler, but Breen kinda made him sound worse than he was.

    JR is not the greatest ball handler, but he is not terrible either

    JR is actually one of the best ball handlers we have on this team. He can take his man off the dribble create for himself, work the p&r and create for others.

    He's definately better than Fields if we're talking about ballhandling.

    Landry fields is a pretty basic ball handler, I dont think JR Smith is too bad, he tries to catch his defender off guard a lot for a mid range which usually goes well for him. If anything I want t see him hitting those open 3's he's a streaky shooter.

    Landy Fields isn't a bad ball handler either. It might be confidence. When's he versatile on offense he's pretty good handling the ball.

    His problem is that he plays like he is a better ball handler than he actually is with all the odd movements and spinning behind the back fancy stuff he does and that makes him loose control of it. If he just played a bit more relaxed with it he would be fine.

    Smith is a decent ball handler nothing special but not terrible, he's good enough to score off the dribble and occasionally cross somebody.
