When we did a head-to-head handles comparison between Stephen Curry and Kyrie Irving earlier this year, we gave the slight edge to Irving because we preferred Irving’s premeditated moves over Curry’s improvisations. But after watching this video from a USA Basketball mini-camp in Las Vegas, we may have to change our ranking.

Curry is a lot younger than the assistant coach who’s guarding him here. And, sure, the coach isn’t playing tough defense—it’s a non-contact camp, after all. But still, Curry’s full array of moves is on display, a behind-the-back dribble to a pull-up jumper (which gets a reaction from LeBron James), followed by dribbling the ball between the coach’s legs before hitting a step-back jumper. Wow!
