Locke does a great job helping me feel like a more intelligent fan. He helps me understand the numbers, which has helped me see the bigger picture. He also helps me see how these players are just like you and I, reminding us that these players are just human. Best podcast out there if you are a fan of the Utah Jazz! I have also listened to a variety of other Locked on Podcasts and have been impressed by the content all around.
David Locke at his best is fantastic, but these moments are far outweighed by his lows. His uncontrollable desire to pick and choose stats to defend his favorite players and criticize his least favorites cheapens his analysis. This is most apparent when he randomly denigrates former Jazz players to argue how the Jazz are improved with new players. At arbitrary moments in unrelated discussions, he canât resist digging an insult in about former players. Unfortunately, he seems more interested in being petty than in impartial analysis of the current team. I finally unsubscribed when Locke devoted large parts of several podcasts to criticize Alec Burks after he was traded about why he was not good. He did the same thing last year after Hood and Johnson were traded. At least Burks was with the Jazz long enough this year, so Locke has a villain for his Jazz narrative.
Locke is thorough in his analysis and does truly provide insider info.
David does and excellent job at bringing great content almost every day for us Jazz fans. He has taken the time on numerous ocassions to read my questions and makes us everyday fans feel important. His energy and nerdiness are contagious and I feel like a better educated fan because of his hard work and commitment to the jazz and to our community. Thanks Locke!
Good points and interesting podcasts but I canât handle the ads all the time. Just very annoying and too much I canât listen anymore.
Excellent podcast, David Locke is the best!
I love the locked on podcasts. Iâve been listening for 4 years and now enjoy previews of whom ever we play that day! Many thanks
David Locke is the best. Love the energy. Love the breakdown. Love the content. Donât listen to the national guys they donât know. Listen local they know the team.
One of the first podcasts I started listening too. As a Jazz fan it provides greatly insight into the team.
Love getting insight on the Jazz and nba. Does a terrific work, you can tell he has done the homework to keep you updated on the latest info.
Great source for not only jazz info, but a ton nba info. Also this guy puts into a great amount of work for the fans. Thank you so much for a great listen to daily! I have been listening for 5 years! Please never stop!
Been a listener for several years now, and there is none better than this one. My only complaint is the amount of ads on Postcasts. There are 2 ads and a sponsor mention before anything is discussed, and itâs less than a 10 minute podcast. Seems excessive. Regardless, I love all the work Locke does to make this amazing
Best podcast Iâve listened to.
Thanks for all you do with this podcast! I love getting into water cooler chat and throwing out facts and stats to defend my point of view...I obtain a good chunk of my info from this podcast! Keep up the great work, Iâll be waiting patiently everyday for the release of the next podcast.
I had only been following the Jazz for less than two seasons when a friend recommended this podcast to me. What a life changing event that was. Everything I know about basketball I learned from Locked on Jazz. Iâve never played basketball and Iâm terrible with numbers - but Locke breaks down games for me in ways that deepen my understanding and love of the game. This is my #1 podcast I MUST listen to every day (my second is also in the Locked On network). Locke is brilliant and always honest about the team. If weâre good, he praises us. If not, he will tell you. I love going on stat journeys with Locke. Locke if you read this - thanks for giving me a burning passion for our Utah Jazz. I hope to meet you someday and thank you in person. @broncobecka
Iâm a huge NBA fan and the Jazz are my team so being able to get to hear analysis on them each day is fantastic. Being small market the Jazz donât make national headlines often and the local sports radio guys talk Jazz but not to the level of detail Locke gets into. I feel I can talk to any NBA fan intelligently about my team because of the info Locke provides. Pros: -Daily content -Great analytical insight (I have an analytics background so I love it. Others may not appreciate as much)-Passion and understanding of the game-Insights only someone around the team would have Cons: -Ads can get a bit heavy (but i understand money needs to be made)-I think Locke does 1 take and little to no podcast cleanup so itâs not as well put together than someone like Zack Lowe (but Iâll take it because itâs daily)- Locke is factual and doesnât speculate which is probably good but it would be nice to get a little speculation based on your insider knowledge especially with player movement. Overall itâs great and I look forward to listening to it each day. Keep up the great work Locke.
Love the podcast David!!!! Itâs always great to listen to while on lunch at work!! Great to always keep up with the jazz, thanks for helping keep me informed and giving good insight into the team.
Keep it up
Huge Jazz fan, love listening to this podcast everyday. Always listen walking around campus, so interesting and so fun!! Keep it up Locke
Love the #âs & the insights.Very entertaining.
Useful in general, but Locke loves to contradict himself within a few daysâ span, and 7-8 minutes of ads for a 30 minute show is beyond absurd
David Locke is amazing! Long time lurker and I realized I have never reviewed his podcast. Every podcast is entertaining and he backs everything thing up with DATA (aka Geeky Numbers). If you are a Jazz fan... you need this podcast.
I really enjoy this podcast. Lots of juicy tidbits about the Jazz and the NBA.
Iâve been an avid listener for years and have loved the constant flow of information and insight you provide on your podcast. The stats are awesome as is the enthusiasm you represent âourâ team with. I am from Idaho but I love my UTAH FREAKINâ JAZZ!!! Keep up the great work David!
Locked on Jazz is as much a part of my daily routine as my wife and kids. If I donât get my daily fix Iâm as bad off as when David Locke misses his morning cup of cafe. Love his passion for the Jazz and the statistical insights he brings to the average listener.
Fun podcast to learn about all things Jazz.
Best NBA podcast out there. By far the best Utah Jazz analysts. Other Jazz beat writers have zero personalities. Love what youâre doing Locke, keep it up!
David Locke is incredibly knowledgeable about all aspects of basketball. He gets in deep with the analysis and it gets pretty nerdy. While itâs mostly Jazz news here, Locke will touch on other news and player efficiency analysis. A must listen if youâre a Jazz fan, and a great listen if youâre an overall NBA fan. Im a Bulls fan first, but the Jazz are my second favorite team, Iâve liked em since they hired Quinn Snyder. I love a lot of the Jazz players as well as Snyderâs ability to get the most out of his players. In comparison, watching the Jazz makes it harder to watch the Bulls these days.
Great behind-the-scenes reporting and information. Best analysis in the game. Must be the hardest working analyst in the league. After you listen to Locke for a while, you realize many other commentators are relatively amateurish. I donât mean that pejoratively. Itâs just that Locke is so tireless and methodical in digging up facts and data and studying the game. No other NBA podcast that Iâm familiar with matches that.
The highlight of my day! More PAAC!!!!ð
Best deep-dive analytics on the Jazz you will find. I listen every single day. I'm afraid this pod is so good that some NBA team is going to steal Locke and give him an analytics position (a la ex-ESPN man Hollinger). Don't leave us David!
LI had to give it a 1 because his ads are SOOOOO painfully long. He doesnât believe what he is selling. He throws in some Jazz talk in between his commercial ads. I would literally pay him money to do this podcast ad free
I can appreciate what Locke is trying to bring because I am hungry for all info on the Jazz I can get. But Lockeâs attitude towards fans who depart from his line of thinking just comes off as degrading. That plus the exorbitant amount of ads has finally broken me from supporting this podcast anymore.
No one keeps you more informed than Locke, if youâre a Jazz fan this is a must, he has content everyday, so... be prepared for it to consume you like a Netflix series. He keeps the fan engaged, uses numbers to tell stories and if he seems over caffeinated, he is and thatâs why we love him... Heâs our Locke and we are blessed to have him cover our team.
Favorite podcast on the planet!
Great podcast, I'm a big Jazz fan and I like all the geeky numbers Locke throws out there. My only criticism is that sometimes he sips his coffee near the microphone during recording which makes me want to stick a pencil in my ear. Other than that,,,love it! Keep up the great work!
Bom bom bom bom bom bom... POW!
Locke does an awesome job giving his inside perspective. Even though heâs close to the team, I always feel heâs being honest with his opinion. A must listen for any Jazz fan.
David does a phenomenal job covering the Utah Jazz as only an insider can. Unique insights and info you wonât find anywhere else.
Iâm not even a jazz fan but started listening to this after discovering Locked on NBA and wanting to follow the Hayward as his free agency approached. Great insight and information as always!
Canât beat Lockeâs dedication and love for the Jazz and basketball
Iâve listened to Locke since the mid 90s, before he left the salt lake radio market for Seattle. Always loved the guy. In the 90s, he was more of a bomb thrower, always stirring up controversy. He loved to tweak BYU fans back then (i felt tweaked often), as well as his audience as a whole. I remember a entire afternoon show where Locke ripped on Scottie Pippen as being the most overrated 3 man in the league. This went on and on for 3 hours. Locke can be very convincing. It got to the point where people were calling in agreeing with Locke. At the end of the show Lock said he was basically trolling his listeners and that Pippen was by far the best 3 man in the league, and anyone who thought differently was an idiot. With that he signed off for the day. It was highly entertaining.Now heâs remade himself as a âmoneyballâ expert. Genuinely so. Locke has become an NBA analytics expert. His opinions are amazingly prescient.Iâve always considered the Jazz fan base very educated about the game. Since Locke was made radio voice, that has increased exponentially. Locke really has taught the Jazz fan base the new NBA. David Lockeâs locked on Jazz podcast is the most educational pod in the NBA universe. Even this old Stockton to Malone basketball junkie happily admits that Lockeâs pod is a graduate level course in the game.I will always be partial to Hot Rod Huntleyâs radio announcing. Lockeâs calls are improving. That said, the Jazzâs biggest asset isnât Quin Snyder, or Dennis Lindsey, or even Rudy Gobert or Donovan Mitchell. The Utah Jazzâs biggest asset is David Locke. The lockeman is so talented, he can make analysis of a room temperature team a daily must-listen event. Locke is a Utah institution, and i hope he never leaves. If you love the game of basketball, especially if you love the Jazz, this is a must-listen.
Thank you for all the hard work you do! Not only on this Podcast but giving me access to my Bronco Podcast!
Locke is incredible. I love listening to his analysis every day. Must listen for any true Jazz fan!
5 stars tooo easy to give. Appreciate your hard work, Locke and team!
If youâre a Jazz fan this podcast is an absolute must.
David really knows how to cover all the bases and display a true knowledge of the game pertaining to the Jazz. His use of analytics is refreshing and indepth without overpowering his fan base. A must listen for Jazz fans.
The only bad thing about Locke's podcast is that I get annoyed listening to other podcasts on the Utah Jazz because they don't go to same depth of understanding that Locke does.
Great work Locke! Iâve been listening since your first episode but this is my first time giving a review. I appreciate the hard work and the great insight. I also love the data! Thanks!
Best Utah Jazz information out there. Hands down.
