Going to have to hold my nose and put Kyrie atop this list

Unfortunately we will have no recaps or Green Envy's for a while, so figured it might be fun and give people a distraction to debate in the comment section on a different question every day while we are stuck in this new normal.

Today's question:

Who are the best ball handlers in Celtics history?

Pains me to say it, but I think Kyrie Irving will have to take the top spot here. Unless you want to discount him consideration due to the fact he only played in 127 games for Boston. I wouldn't fault you for that. If that's the case then my guess is Rajon Rondo comes to the top of the mountain. Old timers mights say Bob Cousy aka the "Houdini of the Hardwood," but associate Cous more with his passing skills than ball handling. Also of note, Pete Maravich played briefly late in his career on the Celtics. But again, was he more of a passer?

Looking for some more obscure names too. How about Sebastian Telfair or Sherman Douglas? Tiny Archibald has to be in the conversation as well. Am I focusing exclusively on point guards and missing out on someone? Comment below with the best ball handlers in Celtics history. The famous and the ones we probably forgot about.
