On Monday, over a month after the team parted ways with David Griffin, Koby Altman was promoted from the assistant GM role he held since Sept. 2016 — a move the Cavs hope will help get the team back on the right track. “Over the past month, Koby Altman has led our front office group through this transition period, impressing many inside the franchise and outside the organization, as well," Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert said in a statement.
Kyrie Irving sent the NBA universe into a frenzy on Friday afternoon when the news broke that he recently requested that the Cleveland Cavaliers trade him to another team. The questions, and the criticisms, closely followed. If Irving is ultimately traded away from the team that drafted him with the No. 1 overall pick six years ago, he would be removed from the inevitable shadow that comes with playing alongside LeBron James.
The two-time NBA MVP — fresh off his second championship with the Golden State Warriors — spent a portion of his weekend in China conducting a youth basketball clinic as part of his annual tour of the country. The clinic, which took place Saturday in Beijing during the Jr. NBA Finals, is the latest example of the NBA's initiative to encourage boys and girls across the globe to learn basketball at a young age.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
