BOSTON (CBS) — After a week of speculation and a boatload of trade rumors, draft night went about as planned for the Boston Celtics. The Knicks were asking for an absurd amount in return, so Kristaps Porzingis is still in New York. The Celtics balked at sending Chicago the third pick on Thursday or their likely Top 5 pick from Brooklyn next year, so Jimmy Butler is now a member of the Timberwolves.
BOSTON (CBS) — The profile pieces are done. The hours of analyzing stats and YouTube clips of teenagers is complete. All that’s left is picks to start flying off the board. The NBA Draft has finally arrived. But that doesn’t mean the hype train and rumor mill won’t stop churning. They’ll both be at full steam leading up to 7pm, when Adam Silver takes the stage in Brooklyn to welcome his stars of the future.
BOSTON (CBS) — We’re less than a week away from the NBA Draft, so everyone’s sanity is entering the danger zone. It’s the absurd time of the year when a rumor from an unnamed source can ruin a weekend, or a life-long friendships can come to an end over a discussion about a teenager’s perceived upside. It’s a time when a simple picture on social media can make everyone go a tad bit crazy with speculation, not that that is really anything new.
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".
