Minor gripe here -- shouldn't Locke know how to pronounce players names?

    Somewhat valid criticism: he’s a company man. Okay, but anyone expecting a guy to put his job and all his relationships on the line to be a hyper-critical *** to the organization is delusional.

    Most other criticisms sound a whole lot like anti-intellectualism, laziness, or some ******** criticizing him for not being sufficiently traditionally masculine (“nasally voice”, comments about how he is doing something gay).

    The people that are most worked up belong in that last category and I have much sharper criticisms of them than they do about a dude that loves the sport, loves the team, and got where he has by busting his ***.

    I'm generally a Locke fan. During the season, I listen to the Locked on Jazz podcast regularly. I have a lot more pet peeves about Bolerjack than Locke (e.g., how do you not know what a "skip pass" is after broadcasting basketball for several decades?). My one pet peeve about Locke: someone should explain to him that audibly sucking up snot and swallowing it while broadcasting or taping a podcast is disgusting.

    It doesn't matter. Locke has 30 seconds of content followed by a 1 minute ad or him talking about what he's going to talk about later for the duration of the podcast.

    Locke is really hit and miss for me. The parts I prefer are news and observations/analysis about players or games. Sometimes his stats are ok but he tends to drag them out so much and start comparing numbers against every single team that I'll almost always skip that part of his show. But occasionally he'll have some comparisons that are pretty interesting.

    You're writing comprehension needs work.

    I don’t think you understand the meaning of reading comprehension.

    My minor gripe: his insistence to stick with the “drum roll” and “pow!” in the intro to his podcast. This has a Larry David-esque sort of embarrassing quality to it... but without the same intention.
