Remember those old Nike commercials featuring puppet versions of Kobe Bryant and LeBron James? Well, if you're under a certain age, probably not. Fortunately, Nike is bringing them back as the Lakers get set to honor Bryant on Monday night by retiring his No. 8 and 24 jerseys at Staples Center. Nike has released three new commercials with puppet 'Bron and puppet Kobe chatting on the beach about Bryant's illustrious career.
The Steelers lost Antonio Brown in the first half of Sunday's game in Pittsburgh after the star receiver left the field with a calf injury, but Martavis Bryant and JuJu Smith-Schuster picked up the slack with six catches and 89 yards combined, including a one-handed touchdown grab by Bryant to give the Steelers a 17-10 lead heading into the locker room. What some fans may not have noticed on the live CBS broadcast, though, is the celebration that followed.
Don't get too excited about that dream of luring LeBron James to Los Angeles, Lakers fans. Despite rumors running rampant this season about James packing up and heading to LA as a free agent next summer, the Lakers are a "longshot" to sign the Cavs superstar, according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne and Brian Windhorst.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
