The Kind of Quality Content You’re Looking For
Spence combines his knowledge of the game with his connections around the NBA for an interesting and exciting listening experience. He seems to always bring up things that aren't obvious to see from the surface that you’ve probably never even thought of before. Spence brings in “A-list” NBA personnel and always knows the right question to ask to get an interesting response out.
Spence Checketts is 10/10 worth listening to.
