Look, this team isn't going to put fans in seats at the start of the season—until the wins start pouring in, of course. It isn't a glamorous squad, and its identity will remain in constant flux as it picks apart the weaknesses of its opponents. But the benefit of avoiding star power for understated production, particularly for the second unit, is retaining flexibility and immense value at all positions. Especially in a re-draft world, few teams can legitimately go 12 deep.
If you're just joining us in this NBA re-draft to end all re-drafts…hoo boy—you're in for a shock. LeBron James and Kyrie Irving are separated by about as much real estate possible when looking at NBA cities. Carmelo Anthony is in an awkwardly familiar place. James Harden and Dwight Howard are reunited and hoping the experiment works better this time around for the...well, we won't spoil the surprise. Our first two installments focused on first-round alpha dogs and top tandems.
If the Los Angeles Chargers locker room at the StubHub Center was stripped of the conspicuous branding on the walls, you might confuse it for the dressing area of a small university. Maybe even the modest digs on Netflix's Last Chance U. The narrow metal lockers, cramped aisleways and name tags that can be peeled off with a minimal amount of effort don't feel like the typical state-of-the-art NFL accommodations. There are sardines and cocktail wieners in the world that are more comfortable.
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".
