With the NBA’s Feb. 8 trade deadline fast approaching, the rumour mill is beginning to heat up. Here are some of the latest trade reports and rumblings from around the Association. The Cleveland Cavaliers roster is in need of a much-needed boost, and no, Isaiah Thomas doesn’t seem to be the answer.
The San Antonio Spurs and head coach Gregg Popovich are hardly shy about resting important players throughout the season in an effort to maintain their health for an inevitable playoff run.
In the 2000-01 season, Jerry Stackhouse led the NBA in total points scored and finished second with 29.8 points per game— easily the most of his seventeen year career. But his team, the Detroit Pistons, went just 32-50 that season. “Sometimes less is more,” Stackhouse realized, and the following season, 2001-02, his shot attempts went down by seven per game as his scoring dropped to just over 21 ppg. And his team flipped their record, going 52-30 and earning the no.2 seed in the East.
Every time I talk to Lucas somehow the conversation or interview comes back to a long-winded discussion on why John Frusciante is the critical member of the RHCP's, and without him the band loses its soul. Deep thinker, that Bebe.
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".
