When good friends David Locke, host of Locked on NBA, and Kevin Pelton, ESPN Insider, get together every year to preview the NBA season.  This year it isn’t in person like it has been over the past few years.   However, the conversation is just as fun as they talk about the new groupings and triplets around the NBA and how they are all going to work out or not.  Pelton lures Locke into his usual absurd comments, such as someone other than Cleveland Cavaliers or Boston Celtics will be #1 in the East and Oklahoma City Thunder will finish 6th in the West.

Despite the absurdity of Locke, Pelton gives a ton of insightful comments on how the NBA will play out this year and how teams will do.


David Locke enters his ninth year as the radio play-by-play voice of the Utah Jazz, having spent the majority of his career in radio in Salt Lake City and Seattle. In the summer of 2016, Locke created the Locked on Podcast Network which has podcast daily bite sized podcasts for every NBA and NFL team. A native of Palo Alto, Calif., Locke graduated from Occidental College in Los Angeles with a degree in Political Science and Sociology. Locke and his wife have a son and a daughter.
