Who is the league's best ball handler?

CHRIS PAUL, CLIPPERS PG 50%

STEVE NASH, SUNS PG 11%

JAMAL CRAWFORD, HAWKS SG 11%

DERON WILLIAMS, NETS PG 8%

DERRICK ROSE, BULLS PG 6%

FAST FACTS

Crawford was the only non-point guard in the top seven.... Paul and Nash topped the same poll when SI asked five years ago, but in reverse order.... Nash got more respect from his contemporaries: Only 6% of players under 30 named him, but he got 27% of the over-30 vote .... Nash also ruled on Facebook, where in a similar poll he tallied 54%. Celtics PG Rajon Rondo (sixth on the players' list) edged Paul for second, 19% to 17%.
