    David Locke is a special guess on the recent Dunc'd on Basketball podcast as they feature the Utah Jazz.

    I thought the title of this thread would be "Locke ruins everything" but he actually gives great insight to the Jazz, Quin and the FO.

    For Jazz fans you will pick up who he is talking about when he gives examples (not very subtle). Definetly worth a listen.


    *Edit
    NUMBERICA is David Locke.

    Locke hate is a very bizarre thing to me. Tells me a lot about a person, actually.

    I think Locke is generally a terrible play-by-play announcer and can get annoying at times, but I love his numbers insight and his obvious knowledge/love of the game.

    Wait. So players can be 'hated' on but broadcasters etc can't? Why?

    I mean, fans always have takes on players they like or don't like... Why are media and pundits off limits?
    Are you just saying that you think Locke is really knowledgeable etc, so in general you find those who don't like him are generally a bit basketball IQ challenged?

    I'm saying hating a person because you don't like the way someone talks is asanine. That's the gist of people's problem with Locke. He's too excited? He thinks he's so smart (he kind of is though, sorry)? He's shrill? He talks too fast? These are not reasons to dislike a person, but they are reasons for me to think less of at least that person's ability to make judgments.

    There are valid reasons to have serious misgivings about others, how excited they are or how they talk are not valid ones. Like, point blank.

    There's also a smell of homophobia/toxic masculinity (not to mention pretty flagrant anti-intellectualism) that I would be remiss to not mention as part of the anti-Locke culture.

    I haven't listened to a basketball game on the radio in at least 20 years so I've never heard Locke do play-by-play.

    I wasn't aware people dis-liked him.

    As far as his podcasts go, I catch about 75% of them.

    I zone out sometimes when he gets in the weeds with the numbers; but otherwise I think he's a pretty straight shooter when it comes to The Jazz and player performance - for a company shill at least.

    My complaint here is that, with all of the podcasting Locke does how the heck does he not have a better microphone for this interview. Sheesh.

    FWIW - if you're a fan of the NBA at large at all (and I assume you are given you're visiting an NBA-related forum), I couldn't recommend the Dunc'd on podcast more. Its great for the morning commute - the hosts are really knowledgeable and watch a ton of games. They do a good job keeping up with general NBA consensus about player, teams, news, etc.

    I thought people don't like him for other reasons mainly:
    1. 'Spokesperson' (secret) for the Jazz FO and coaching staff. Toes the company line.
    2. That he develops close 'allegiances' with some players and not others.
    3. Defends certain players e.g. Hood, while seemingly being very dim on others e.g. Exum
    4. Sometimes appears to use data/analytics to reach a predetermined objective (sometimes)....

    Woah. So Locke's delivers his material like a sledgehammer with zero tact and Im a homophobe?

    That is the most left field take Ive read in here.
