On draft night, the Sixers will likely take Markelle Fultz with the first pick, bringing together one of the most exciting collections of young talent in the NBA. It has birthed a passionate alternative fan base, dedicated to building the team in the image of their deposed icon, Sam Hinkie. His first winter in Philadelphia was brutal. The team was terrible. The weather was worse. Sam Hinkie went to high school and college in Oklahoma. He did his postgrad stint at Stanford.
In the LeBron-Draymond Post-Finals Petty War, Everybody Wins Since the NBA Finals ended, Dray and King James have exchanged barbs via custom T-shirts, Instagram captions, and podcast interviews. Turns out beefing is good for business. Forget the Finals. This is the drama we were promised and rightly deserve. Maybe the third installment of the Warriors-Cavs trilogy wasn’t what we hoped, but the post-production work has been top notch.
A live dispatch from an event that revealed nothing … and everythingTo get to the Lakers’ practice courts at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, you have to pass through a small anteroom. That was hard to do Wednesday morning. It was clogged with a knot of local and national media. There were so many journalists at the facility that they spilled down the hallway toward the entrance. The fire marshal would not have been pleased. It was hard to estimate how many reporters were in attendance.
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".
