Thanks to two players — LeBron James and Kyrie Irving — who sell more signature shoes than anyone else in the league, the Cavs are more closely aligned with Nike than any NBA team. Or, at the very least, any team aside from maybe Michael Jordan's Charlotte Bobcats. And it's the Cavs — one of the few organizations that are dramatically changing their look for the 2017-18 season — that might have the most to gain from the NBA's switch to Nike as the league's exclusive oncourt apparel provider.
If the battle over the proposed transformation of Quicken Loans Arena continues for much longer, the NBA will no longer consider Cleveland as a host city for the 2020 or 2021 All-Star Game, Mark Tatum, the league's deputy commissioner and chief operating officer, wrote in a letter to David Gilbert, the president and CEO of the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission, on Wednesday, July 19. The letter was included in a 276-page summary that was filed with the Ohio Supreme Court on Thursday, July 20.
It's been 31 days, one draft and one hectic start to free agency since the Cavs brought an end to the David Griffin era, as the general manager reportedly was busy trying to make a trade for the likes of Paul George and Jimmy Butler. LeBron James, according to USA Today, is concerned, and Kyrie Irving says the GM-less Cavs are "in a peculiar place."
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".
