Shabar Ewing has always been the guy with the key to New York, be it getting dinner reservations at one of the city’s great steakhouses or bottle service at exclusive clubs for NBA stars. Since his injury-shortened college basketball days, he has been hooking up NBA players with whatever they need when they come to New York, earning him an ironclad rep around the League as the perennial plug.
It’s kind of hard to believe that Andre Drummond is only 24 years old and already entering his sixth NBA season, but here we are. Since he was the No. 9 pick in the 2012 draft by the Pistons, the 6-11 center has blossomed into (arguably) the NBA’s best rebounder who pumps out double-doubles with the best of them. The problem is that the supporting cast around Drummond in Detroit seems to change every year, as does the coaching staff.
Stuck in relative obscurity with the Nets in both New Jersey and Brooklyn for the first nine seasons of his career, Brook Lopez is the best offensive center you never saw on national TV and rarely saw in the playoffs. But now, after an offseason trade to his hometown Lakers, Lopez is in the spotlight as the veteran presence on a young and talented L.A. team boosted by the arrival of Lonzo Ball.
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".
