Brent is a former Division One college basketball official with over 25 years experience, and over those 25 years, he has definitely seen it all.

Spence Checketts - Reality Check Podcaster/NBA Insider

To say that Spence Checketts "knows his stuff", is an understatement. Having the unique advantage of practically unlimited access to the inner-workings of the NBA, almost from birth, Spence learned from the start that hard work is what truly sets professionals apart from their counterparts. His dedicated work ethic, along with the wisdom of heeding solid advice from trusted advisers has brought Spence to the next phase of his life - hosting a new podcast with nationally well-known guests that are as interested in Spence as he is in them. We hope you enjoy getting to know Mr. Spence Checketts. *Podcast Note - We did experience a technical "challenge" with this podcast that makes the audio slightly distorted. Call it a rookie mistake. However, the content is superb and we know you will enjoy it.
