LeBron James has bullied the Knicks during his 15-year N.B.A. career. He’s dominated them on the court and rejected them in free agency. He helped turn a generation of stars against their team president and eliminated them from the playoffs. The Knicks, enfeebled for most of the past two decades, have been unable to push back. But Monday night, in the final minute of the first quarter, the Knicks, for once, showed a backbone, and the display of defiance came from a rookie: Frank Ntilikina.
There is a dissonance underlying every World Series. Every year we watch as two very good, sometimes great teams vie to determine Major League Baseball’s champion. Even when a 2006 Cardinals team slips on through, baseball’s final showdown remains the pinnacle of the sport. This is as good as it gets; it may never be this good again. That is the uncomfortable lesson at the heart of October. Enjoy this now, because who knows how long this will last.
For the first half of their home opener on Saturday night, the new-look Knicks appeared to be onto something. They thundered to a 21-point lead against the Detroit Pistons that stood at 13 when the second quarter ended. The many Knicks fans in attendance had reason to feel just a tiny bit more optimistic about the challenging season ahead. That feeling didn’t last long.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
