By now, your opinions on Sam Hinkie should be long formed. He’s a living God, the embodiment of all that is forward-thinking in this world. Or you still can’t stop rolling your eyes, can’t help yourself. Or you acknowledge his great moves while questioning the time span or specific personnel choices. Etc. Etc. Etc. There was a time, however, back before Markelle Fultz began playing high school varsity ball, when you didn’t know Hinkie’s exact intentions.
You couldn’t blame their skepticism. This bald-headed guy in his 50s wearing cargo shorts pops out of his car on Kingsessing Avenue, starts into this spiel. Mike Gibson looks more like a process server than some kind of Basketball Angel. He happens to be both, which is why he was in Southwest Philadelphia this week, dropping off complaints and subpoenas for municipal court, plus some basketballs out of his trunk.
Elan Vinokurov of EV Hoops offered his thoughts on the expected top NBA lottery picks, including on their fit with the 76ers. Overall thought: "Tier to himself." Fit with Sixers: Speaks for itself. X-factor: "The No.1 pick for our staff since before the season." Overall thought: Teams won't hesitate to take despite his dad. Biggest question:. His shot. "But I buy into it. It's a weird shot. Will it be streaky? Maybe, but it works for him. He has range." Fit with Sixers: A good one.
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".
