On a scale from zero to 10, zero being a burp and a yawn, 10 being a rocket to ride, the Jazz's draft night was a … five, or a six, maybe, a burp and a feeling that OK, that could turn out to be pretty productive, fairly satisfying at some point on down the line. Despite what some had expected, there was not a holy-hell-hold-onto-your-shorts moment for the Jazz on Thursday night. They were hardly a Sopwith Camel flying through a hurricane.
There are times and seasons for all things. Time for the Jazz to do something bold. Not something kind of bold or nearly bold or mostly bold. Something all the way bold. I was told a few weeks ago by someone who would know that the Jazz had little choice but to do exactly that — take advantage of a window that could lead to the team becoming elite. And the voice was one of absolute veracity.
You may not like the way the Golden State Warriors became the glorious thing that they are, much of which was achieved through acumen, terrific draft picks and just plain smart decisions by management. It was that last move, though, that got you. The signing of Kevin Durant was the one that transformed the Warriors from a remarkably beautiful specimen into the most beautiful specimen, not just in this particular pageant, but perhaps in any and all pageants ever held.
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".
