Right now he's pushing hard the narrative that continuity and friendship are actually not as important and good as we previously thought(aka "as he was pushing for the last 18 months"). It's not that it's unreasonable position and it's not that I don't agree, but I'm kind fed up with how he pushes every single development around this team toward the narrative that most favors the team, no matter if he's been singing the complete opposite song for years before - the moment it suits us, he instantly switches up the story he's telling.
If I am being honest I don’t think Locke was ever sold on last years team...I remember he speculated that there would be changes at the beginning of the last off season on one of his podcasts. He used a reference of a Sonics team in the 90’s that kept the same team from one year to the next and didn’t see a great return the 2nd of the two years. Obviously nothing ended up happening and he put a positive spin on everything, but I really don’t think he is a fan of the “continuity” agenda personally.

That was my point - he's not really a fan of any particular strategy or path, he just selling hard whatever path the Jazz management chooses even if they are polar opposites two years in a row.
