Basketball & Family Life with Richard Chaney

I had the pleasure of interviewing Puerto Rico basketball star Richard Chaney. He is a very charming and down to earth guy. I met Richard a long while ago during summer traveling team ball, while he and my cousin Gabe Pruitt played together. My family and I spent a lot of time at those tourneys. He comes from a great family. Glad I had the pleasure of meeting them also.
