When the team float made the right turn from 39th Street on to Fifth Avenue, the New York Liberty players could no longer contain themselves. They cheered. They laughed. They danced. They hugged. They screamed. The Liberty had known for weeks that for the first time ever, the franchise would have a float in the New York Pride Parade. But not until they made that turn were they hit by the shock wave of thousands of cheering, joyous fans did the emotion explode. “This is so overwhelming.
Phil Jackson looked directly into the camera and took the opportunity to talk directly to fans during his interview with Al Trautwig on Knicks Night Live. “I think we know what we’re doing,” he said. Through the awkwardness of the Carmelo Anthony relationship and the madness of the Kristaps Porzingis trade scenarios, there really is some evidence of a plan. Three years into Jackson’s tenure, it still, however, remains lost in the drama.
The celebration will have to wait until Sunday. Barely. Down 21 in the third quarter, the Liberty almost pulled off the greatest comeback in franchise history before falling 94-89 to the Connecticut Sun on Pride Night in The Garden. When Shevonte Zellous powered in a layup with 1:06 left, the game was tied 86-86 and the 10,240 fans were turning the “Mecca of Basketball” into a sound asylum. But the Sun scored six straight points to hold on.
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".
