Tim Hardaway Jr. had just finished up one of those games when the box score doesn’t tell the whole story. At first glance, his stat line reads 37 points on 14-of-24 shooting. It looked like he carried the pathetic New York Knicks all night long against the playoff-bound Washington Wizards. Look a little closer, and you’ll see that 32 of those points came in the first half (via NBA.com).
Bust. It’s one of the cruelest labels an athlete can receive. The newest member of the New York Knicks, Emmanuel Mudiay, has carried the weight of that word for some time now. The former 2015 lottery pick needed a fresh start, and the Knicks were just the team to give it to him. Kyle Lowry was traded by two different teams before he found the perfect fit with the Toronto Raptors as their franchise player.
The 2018 NBA trade deadline was beautifully chaotic. The Cleveland Cavaliers stole the headlines when they pulled off some NBA 2K type trades in the hopes it will bring them closer to a championship and convince LeBron James to stay. The New York Knicks flew under the radar; along with the rest of the league. Kristaps Porzingis’ injury signaled the end of any playoff chances the team had and ushered in the possibility of a tank for the remainder of 2018.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
