The NBA Finals have concluded and the NBA Draft is now just a week away. Congratulations to Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Milwaukee Bucks and all of the good people that support the team; but with that, the entire population of the NBA universe officially gets to move on to the offseason. That’s where all the fun is at anyway, right?

Both Chase and James have been keeping up with the development of the prospects in the 2021 class throughout the past college/international season, and now that the pre-draft process has all but wrapped up for those outside of NBA circles, it’s time to let the ink dry on the big boards.

In the tables below, we’ve got both Chase’s and James’ big board for 2021 posted to compare with one another. Both of us created a list of our top-60 prospects and have been workshopping it since last November. Now, it’s time for you all to yell at us in the comments!
