Mac Brennan had a job to do. That's what helped him fight off the fatigue and hold back the nausea. Even in the throes of his leukemia, when he was bed-ridden and aching all over, the child would do his duty: He would watch the film of that day's Utah football practice, sent to him by coach Kyle Whittingham. And in return, he would send back detailed, written notes: what was being done well, what had been done poorly, and who was loafing. "He had a lot of critiques," Whittingham said with a laugh.
Ekpe Udoh's last stint in the NBA ended in Los Angeles with the Clippers in 2015. During that season, he had a teammate that he liked, but didn't make the cut with the team: Joe Ingles. Three years later, Ingles has just been extended for a four-year, $52 million contract coming off his best NBA season. And Udoh, a one-time lottery pick who busted, would like to see some of the same improvement as his former teammate when he joins the Utah Jazz this fall.
When does your 31-point Summer League game get overlooked? When you’re teammates with Lonzo Ball, whose gravity on the media is reaching cosmic levels. But on Monday night, Kyle Kuzma had the stage all to himself in a 30-point, 10-rebound performance with the No. 2 overall pick sitting on the bench. For his efforts, the Los Angeles Lakers Summer League squad earned a 110-98 win over the Portland Trail Blazers in the championship game in Las Vegas, and Kuzma earned game MVP honors.
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".
