Looong time listener
I’ve been listening to Locke since the mid 90s, he was my favorite radio host by far. Since the podcast launched I’ve probably only missed 5 episodes total including Tip Off. A must listen, analytics, insight and enjoyment.
Locke is incredible
Locke’s fire crackling cheer and brutal honesty with regards to the Jazz is such a nice touch. Whether the Jazz are good or bad on a given night, Locke helps with my mental health and gives me therapy when the Jazz lose. Conversely when the Jazz win I get even more hyped listening to him. Lastly, his enthusiasm on his commercials also convince me I need every product he advertises.

A Gateway Drug To the rest of the Locked on Network
I’ve been listening to Locked on Jazz for like 4 or 5 years now. Last year it became a part of my daily routine. I love Locke‘s enthusiasm and the way he approaches the game. He gives incredible insight and interacts with the listeners regularly. Because of Locked on Jazz, I’ve started listening to Locked on Utes, Locked on NBA, Locked on MLB, and Locked on Today, all of which have become a part of my daily routine. Just an amazing podcast network, and Locked on Jazz is definitely the best of them all
The host is studdering
The host is studdering but otherwise great.
A girl with a smile
Bothers me how he claims “every day” but then doesn’t. Should say “your team, when I feel like it.” Some inaccurate marketing
Love the show!
I have been a big fan of David’s for a long time. His knowledge and passion are unmatched! I love Bolerjack but Locke is good enough to be the TV guy as well. I’ve been impressed by the locked on network in general. We are fortunate here in Utah to have David!
Some of his analytics are insightful, some just fill space. I appreciate his enthusiasm, but it would be super awesome if he would get a microphone that leveled out his voice because constantly adjusting the volume in my car every time he screeches is annoying. I could also do with less self righteousness and it couldn’t be more apparent this man has some of the thinnest skin I’ve ever seen. His block list on Twitter has to be staggering. Don’t dare disagree with him. He has an obvious conflict of interest so expecting him to give you honest criticism of the Jazz or individual player performances are not likely until the player or coach is no longer with the organization. He has the market cornered when it comes to Utah jazz podcasts, but if he wasn’t one of the first in a small market and he wasn’t the radio personality for the Jazz, I think people would be better served elsewhere. It’s just ok.
I have been a Jazz fan ever since I was born and my dad showed me this podcast and it is just amazing. David Locke is very smart and he knows what he is talking about. This makes being a Jazz fan much better! Thank you David Locke!!
Smart but arrogant
Intelligent, knows stats and analytics well. More interested in telling what he knows about the game than what’s happening in the game. As one commenter stated: voice sounds like he’s choking on shards of glass. Big Jazz fan but cannot tolerate the radio play by play. The best in the business tell fans what’s happening in the game while humbly and carefully weaving into the broadcast their statistical knowledge. Locke may be narcissistic and incapable of change.

Love staying up to date with all things Jazz, not to mention I love listening to this at work. I work swing shift, so I also love listening to David and Ron for games as well, love the passion in David’s voice talking about the Jazz and on game nights!
Las Vegas Jazz Fan
Been listening for a few years now. And I am obsessed your ability to utilize analytics to explain why teams and players are who they are. I love your point of view, and win or lose go jazz!!!
There’s a lot of debate these days about who is the GOAT. Its not even close, David Locke is the undisputed GOAT. Love the way he makes watching the game for me as a fan more insightful and enjoyable. There’s no better information to supplement your Jazz love with than this podcast!
David Locke is king!
Captivating information, relatable fanboyness, and an undeniable love for his trade. This channel is everything right about sports radio.
My favorite podcast
This podcast makes my daily Jazz conversations with my buddies and work colleagues SO much better. Thank you David for all the geeky numbers.
Gym error always
Quin Snyder’s Skinny Jeans
Great podcast, fantastic numbers, I listen often, the only thing that would make it better is if David Locke could find out where Quin gets his skinny Jeans/slacks. As a physician in my 30’s I had stopped wearing my skinny Jeans in my clinic. Quin has inspired me to get back in the game and sport my skin tight jeans once again. -Dr. Skinny Jeans

Love the show!
I hadn’t been aware of this podcast until this last week. I have loved it.
I’ve been listening somewhat regularly for a few years now, and I always find it very interesting. We can get caught up in opinions and anecdotal evidence. It’s nice to look at numbers and statistics to help make sense of what we are seeing. It really solidifies the analysis and discussion. Keep it up - I love it!
Thanks you David, I look up to you so much and you make it way better to be a jazz fan. I stopped watching jazz games on the television and now i listen to the radio just because of you. Thank You
tennis players are hot
Love listening to D Locke
Honestly I really enjoy listening to Locked on Jazz. I love how excited David gets about the jazz winning, but he isn’t overbearing or unrealistic about what is going on. AND! He isn’t freaking out over a loss against arguably the best team in the nba in the Clippers. He understands that we are gonna lose some and win some. Great supplemental listening as a fan!
I am a transplant Warriors’ diehard fan who moved to Utah to be with grandkids. Your podcast has given me a fast lane to learning about the Jazz for the past three years. I’m a Jazz fan now too. Thank you.
With Hot Rod, we definitely had the VOICE of the Jazz. With David Locke we have the BRAIN of the Jazz. He is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to the math/stats of the game that will help deepen your own knowledge of the game. It’s a new way to look at the game and our Utah Jazz that’s very informative and fun. Keep it up!
I am awesome
Locke is King of His Craft
I’ve learned to appreciate the game by listening to Locke. I get more from listening to his live call than watching it myself. His analysis makes the game interesting and has converted this data nerd into a true fan.

My favorite podcast
I have been listening to this podcast for the last 3 or 4 years and it’s been the first podcast I chose to listen to - it really does make being a Jazz fan more enjoyable - especially a Jazz fan in KS/WI who has never met another Jazz fan. Every once in a while we disagree but he’s about the perfect level of homer for me and backs up what he says with solid stats. I find David Locke quite like-able and the show has taught me a lot about basketball. Keep up the good work/hard work and I’ll keep right on listening. Thanks, the show brings me a lot of joy.
Best show out there!
Locke is the best out there! I listen in every day and never miss a show. His analysis and expertise is second to none.
Good jazz podcast
- Fun topics that make it better too be a Jazz fan. - Seems to have a good understanding of the game. - only uses numbers and stats when relevant for him. - gets very passionate about political views and shares a lot of opinion as absolute facts. - almost every episode I’ve listened to he’s making noises into the microphone that make him sound like he always has a bad cold. Not to mention when he’s sipping on his drinks.
Analysis is good, politics not so much
I love having a show that helps me follow the Jazz on a deeper level, but I don’t come to you to form my political opinions. You alienate a lot of your listeners by acting like what you believe and feel is gospel. I don’t mind you having your own opinions, but this shouldn’t be the format used to impose your beliefs. You represent the Jazz, and it should be unbiased. Wish it was more so that way so you were easier to listen to.
More Than Basketball
I’ve learned a ton about basketball and the Jazz since listening to this pod but today’s episode 1/22/21 might be the most important of them all. Thanks for your passion Locke!
Part of my routine
I’ve listened to Locked on Jazz just about every day for 8 years now. It’s informative about my favorite team, helps me get excited about the team, I’ve learned a ton about the basketball and so it has helped me see things when I’m watching that I don’t think I’d have noticed otherwise, and strangely enough has made me a better husband I think (I am quick to clean the kitchen, do dishes, fold laundry, etc... and throw an AirPod in one ear while I work). I’m a fan and I’m grateful for Locke’s efforts to help us feel connected to the team and to interact with us.
Never give this up, Locke, never!
David is the best in the business!
Love this show!
Locke is Locked On!
When you need daily Jazz coverage, who better to get it from then the voice of the Jazz himself. David does a phenomenal job providing fans with daily exclusive content on the Utah Jazz!
Locked on arrogance
Just tried listening again, but I find David too arrogant.
Locked on Jazz
Awesome podcast! I have listened to Locked on Jazz since it’s beginning. I listened to every podcast! I love the insight and excitement that David provides to his listeners. HUGE fan!
I’ve listened to the podcast ever since David started from YouTube. The insight, detail, and all around information you get is second to none. Great Pod and even the most modest fan can understand more about the teams the love because of this network! Keep up the great stuff!
Listen every day. Been here since the commercial free ,coffee siping days. 🙌🏼
Locke is the best in the business. No comparison

David the GOAT
How can you not love the “budum bum bum bum bum bum POW!!!”?
This is a great podcast. Love it. But we need to have some changes to the jazz. Trade Mike Conley for Otto Porter Jr, Kevin Love, or Blake Griffin. We need a power forward that can shoot besides Bojan. Imagine a lineup of Donovan Mitchell, Jordan Clarkson, Bojan Bogdanovic, (OPJr, Blake Griffin, or Kevin Love), and Rudy Gobert. If possible, get Chris Paul. Trade Mike Conley who everyone thinks is awesome for Chris Paul. Trade Ed Davis for a second round pick. Get some quality bench players that have played an NBA game. Get people that have done good and are proven NBA players. Draft players who are super athletic, have good size, and are determined. Resign Jordan Clarkson. Resign Juwan Morgan and Miye Oni. Get rid of Niang. Get Derrick Favors. Perfect backup center for jazz. Have Tony Bradley get smaller legs. He has heavy legs and slow footwork. Can’t jump much. Get Rudy Gobert on a 25-30 million instead of a freaking 50 mill. Keep Donovan. He’s a killa. And he should be recognized for his greatness. Breaking records of Karl Malone, Michael Jordan, and Allen Iverson in a single game is superstar. And might I mention the game Jordan got 63 points, yeah, he lost too. But nobody talks about that. Donovan’s going to leave if he’s not given the respect he deserves. He worked his butt off, coming from a 13th pick. Starting Lineup: Donovan Mitchell, Jordan Clarkson, Bojan Bogdanovic, (OPJr, Blake Griffin, or Kevin Love), and 2 time DPOY Rudy Gobert (we all know he was the 3 time champ, he got robbed, COVID stuff) Bench: Joe Ingles, Derrick Favors, Tony Bradley, Royce O’Neale, Miye Oni, Juwan Morgan, Georges Niang, Emmanuel Mudiay, A few other players like Korver, JR Smith, or Carmelo Anthony. Not those players, players like them. Championship lineup. Done. Do that. Big trades. Mike Conley players are not big trades. Harden players are big trades. Mike Conley for Blake Griffin. Mike for Kevin Love. Those are big trades.
Best podcast out there! GO JAZZ!
Just finished your podcast that addressed the NBA boycott. Thank you for bringing awareness. Thank you for listening. Thank you for being honest, open, and vulnerable. Thank you for being you and having those difficult conversations. Your podcast is always always amazing, but this one it different. It was super impactful.
everybody said the shooting was unsustainable, we’ve been doing it for three games how long is it going to last
Enough cannot be said about Locke
What a great guy. If for no other reason come here for something different. You may not always agree with his analysis but it's not the vague "takes" you'll hear elsewhere. And to the negative commenters complainging about David aligning himself with the Millers, the Jazz players and the rest of the NBA on societal issues: you are in the minority. How dos that make you feel?
The whole network is garbage. Every channel is a victim of something or another but nobody takes responsibility for their own baggage. Lol. It’s all well but..... The well but network.
Great daily podcast
I love this podcast. I also listen to a few of his other daily podcasts that are focused on other teams. David gives a unique take on basketball and I look forward to listening everyday. Keep adding shows. Started listening to the Oregon Duck locked on podcast. Really great podcast.
13 year old jazz fan, love it!
Must follow if your a Jazz fan
Been a listener since the early days (eight years ago); Locke is a passionate Jazz fan who brings analytics and insight. As an old school Jazz fan I despised the three point shot until Locke converted me with his analytical analysis. Living overseas this podcast allows me to stay up-to-date on all things Jazz. Love it!!!
Really makes it better
Dave seems like just a genuine guy and the stats are awesome for a nerd like me
Not worth it
The ads are overwhelming and he can’t keep his political bias out of it.
Numbers, numbers, and more numbers!
If having a spreadsheet read to you at Coffee Level 10 doesn’t force you to ask about your Jazz commitment level then perhaps the unwavering passion Locke brings will.
No one does it better than Locke. I’ve been listening for years and the guy is real. He cares about basketball and the Jazz and he puts his heart and soul into it. Lucky for us he’s also talented so all that effort translates into a great podcast.
