Luke Kennard is more than just a shooter. Those who like the Detroit Pistons' first-round pick will tell you that. Those who question it wonder if Stan Van Gundy was playing it too safe and while Kennard will contribute, wonder if there wasn't someone with more upside available. That brings us to the report card following Thursday night's NBA Draft, where most analysts give the Pistons an "A" or "B" for picking Kennard. Jeremy Woo, SI.com: B+ "The Pistons were hoping someone would fall to No.
So that's all Jimmy Butler was worth? That's what Chicago Bulls fans have to be asking themselves tonight, as their best player was shipped off to the Minnesota Timberwolves as the NBA Draft opened for business. Of course, a head-scratching draft-day trade is nothing new for sports fans in the Windy City. The Bears overspent to move up one spot to draft QB Mitch Trubisky in April. Now, the Bulls' franchise player is gone.
We're a few years removed from the Charlie Weis era, so it's apparently time for another head-scratching investment in the Kansas football program. Jayhawks athletic director Sheahon Zenger announced Wednesday that plans are moving forward to renovate Memorial Stadium and build an indoor practice facility. That's great, but at what cost for a program that hasn't won more than one conference game in a season since 2008? A mere $300 million.
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".
