If you are a fan, general manager, coach or player in the NBA’s Eastern Conference, you really have to wonder if there is any other organization you’d rather be involved with than the 76ers. Sure, Cleveland still has the world’s best player in LeBron James, and any team that he is on is immediately a championship contender. The question there, though, is what team will he be on in the near future.
It was always so much more than just the product on the court for Brett Brown. When he was being courted by then-general manager Sam Hinkie for the 76ers head-coaching job, Hinkie would not allow Brown to see the 76ers practice facility at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, to mingle among the students hustling to classes, to see the undersized weight rooms, the crammed training spaces.
THE TRADE RUMORS, after the 76ers had made their monster deal with the Boston Celtics at the beginning of the week, didn't come to fruition. Kristaps Porzingis won't be teaming with Joel Embiid in the frontcourt. The team's vision from May 16, when they found out they were slotted to pick at No. 3, was to do whatever it took to ensure they could get the player they saw as the best fit for their team. A player who could help them win in the future, but also right now.
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".
