Auburn Hills — Looks can be deceiving. That’s something college basketball fans eventually realized with Luke Kennard after he arrived at Duke as one of three McDonald’s All-Americans in Mike Krzyzewski’s 2015 recruiting class. It’s something Stan Van Gundy was busy warning Pistons fans about on draft night, too, explaining why the 6-foot-5 shooting guard was the right pick, not just the safe one, or merely the best of what was left at the end of the lottery.
Auburn Hills — Thursday night might have been about the future for the Pistons, who appeared to fill a glaring need by selecting Duke sharpshooter Luke Kennard with the 12th overall pick in the NBA draft. But soon enough, it might be time to turn back the clock. Because at present, the question Stan Van Gundy still must answer, along with owner Tom Gores and the rest of a downtown-bound front office, is how strongly they feel about the core of this roster they’ve constructed the last few years.
Auburn Hills — Whatever this is, at least it’s not boring. And whatever those NBA playoffs were — excitement was in the eye of the beholder, obviously, but ratings were sky high again — this is probably the direct result. The silly season is nothing new for this league, but after an anticlimactic end to an anticlimactic season, we won’t have to wait until the start of free agency in July for some senseless entertainment.
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".
