Trading for a fading star like Carmelo Anthony is the type of move that aspiring contenders usually agonize over, diligently weighing his scoring ability and box-office appeal against the baggage that vexed, and ultimately sank, Phil Jackson. The 33-year-old forward is an unapologetic ball-stopper and lackluster defender who, despite being four seasons past his prime, is set to make $26.2 million this season.
The 2016 NBA Finals was one of the greatest sports finals in history. We all know how the story goes, the Warriors blew a 3-1 series lead and LeBron James finally brought a title to the Cleveland. But how was the experience in person? Ben Golliver recently sat down with Andrew Sharp in the latest Open Floor to discuss his memories of Game 7, Warriors fans and 'The Block'. It's Game 7 of the NBA Finals—the block, the shot, the stop and the shock.
In the latest Open Floor Podcast, Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver are joined by Rob Mahoney to talk about the process of ranking Stephen Curry higher than Kawhi Leonard in our Sports Illustrated top 100 rankings. Andrew Sharp: In the top 15, was there any particular debate you found hardest? Rob Mahoney: I think the one we really got stuck on a lot was Steph vs. Kawhi.
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".
