Two weeks to the day after the Golden State Warriors were crowned champions, it’s time for the first annual NBA Awards Show. Why did the league wait so long to dole out trophies and fan-voted honors from the 2016-17 season? Your guess is as good as ours. Just in case your interest persists, though, here’s who should leave Manhattan’s Pier 36 with some hardware. Note: The first seven categories listed below are determined by fan voting.
The 2017 NBA Draft has come and gone, and now it’s time to hand out some grades to the participants. The Sixers earned this grade over the weekend by trading the third overall pick of Thursday’s draft and a future first-rounder to the Boston Celtics for the first overall pick. Fultz is close to the consensus top prospect in this class, and it’s easy to see why. Players with his blend of size, fluidity, shooting potential and playmaking knack are few and far between.
Dwight Howard spent last summer trying to strengthen his game’s longest standing weakness. All over social media were videos of the career 56.8 percent free throw shooter refining his form from the stripe. He changed his routine, made 450 free throws a day, and attempted to mitigate the mental strain associated with standalone 15-footers in an NBA arena by using multiple unconventional methods. Howard was turning the page on struggles of the past, it seemed, just as his career turned toward home.
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".
