The NBA Draft is a rapid distribution of talent — 60 picks over four hours, spreading talent, potential and optimism throughout the NBA. It can be a lot to take in and so you come seeking rapid analysis. But even reading 30 paragraphs about how each team did can seem overwhelming. That’s why my analysis is boiled down to a bite-sized nugget. One gif for every team, expressing how they did on Draft Night. And that wraps it up folks.
The season may not have ended the way they hoped, but the Cleveland Cavaliers still put together an incredibly strong playoff run. They dropped just one game through the first three rounds of the playoffs and, although they couldn’t keep up with the Warriors, their offense was absolutely incredible. They finished the postseason having scored 118.1 points per 100 possessions, the best mark for any team in the playoffs over the past 15 years.
Chances are if you’re an NBA fan on Twitter you have encountered a hot take or two. The platform is perfect for arguing and the most frustrating thing can be when a stubborn buffoon gets it wrong and refuses to acknowledge a counter argument, or any additional information that might change their mind. Arguing about basketball on Twitter can seem like a Sisyphean task but we are not all granite boulders.
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".
