Kobe Bryant has always been a storyteller. From the Prelude Pack to the Fade to Black Pack, Nike now introduces the Zoom Kobe 1 Protro. What does the word "Protro" mean? Protro brings together performance at the professional level and retro. Bryant coined the term himself. The Protro Kobe 1 "is all about improving on what's been and making it better for what's to come," Bryant tells Bleacher Report Kicks. The Nike Zoom Kobe 1 is the shoe Bryant wore while donning both No. 8 and No. 24 during his career.
That’s exactly what senior footwear designer Benjamin Nethongkome did as the lead creative mind behind the upcoming Nike Kyrie 4. After working as a footwear design intern with Jordan Brand to designing a variety of shoes, including the Kobe Mentality 1 and LeBron Witness 1, Nethongkome’s first signature shoe—the Kyrie 4—will debut on-court soon. “Kyrie said he felt like the [Kyrie] 3 was the most responsive shoe he's worn in his line.
The first time he asked the question, the answer was no. Marcus Jordan wanted to open a sneaker boutique. Five years ago after ending his basketball career at the University of Central Florida, Jordan looked around his adopted home of Orlando and saw a gap in the market. For all of the sneaker stores in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles, the city that houses Disney World had none. Jordan wanted to change that, so he went to his dad to pitch the idea and get some of the funding.
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".
