They bonded over bow ties. Rafael Chillious had recruited Markelle Fultz to the University of Washington, and before long they found that they shared a fondness for that George Will-Malcolm Jenkins style of neckwear. They’d talk over the phone about suits. Chillious, an assistant coach on Lorenzo Romar’s staff at UW, advised him on how to find the proper fit and cut. Their conversations became about more than fashion and basketball. Fultz’s father hadn’t been around when Fultz was a boy.
So what kind of player would the 76ers be getting in Markelle Fultz, assuming — as everyone assumes — that they select him Thursday night with the first pick in the NBA draft? He’s a point guard, but so is Kentucky’s De’Aaron Fox, and the Sixers could have drafted Fox at No. 3. Fultz was a fine shooter in his only season of college basketball, at the University of Washington, making more than 41 percent of his three-point shots.
Lorenzo Romar had 25 minutes to spare between meetings Tuesday afternoon to talk about Markelle Fultz, and he chuckled when he heard you issue the prefacing phrase, No sense dancing around the topic, so… Romar had been Fultz’s coach at the University of Washington, and he knew the question was coming before you asked it. “Why didn’t we win more?” he said over the phone. Well, yes. That is the question, isn’t it?
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".
