Do you remember Dec. 18, 2015, when pop culture nearly trembled and collapsed upon itself? That was the night the most popular player in the NBA, Stephen Curry, hung out with the most popular artist in hip-hop, Drake, after a Warriors game in Oakland. Buzzfeed.com documented the intersection of creative genius in a photo essay, and it blew up. Most of the pix (and a video that made the rounds separately) were shot at an In-N-Out Burger, with Curry’s wife, Ayesha, also in attendance.
OAKLAND — The Warriors found their formula. It was served in a rocks glass with a salted rim. The road to recovery didn’t begin with an extra-long practice or a players-only meeting or a Rumpelstiltskin-like tirade from coach Steve Kerr. It started with a party. Stephen Curry turned 30 on Wednesday. Two days earlier, his wife, Ayesha, had organized a surprise party with invites to a couple hundred of the two-time MVP’s best friends, including just about everyone in his basketball organization.
I went to a Warriors game last Thursday and wound up getting a lesson on the Raiders. That’s because Mark Davis, the team owner, and Jon Gruden, the second most popular coach in franchise history (after John Madden), were sitting courtside at Oracle Arena for the Dubs’ game against San Antonio. The duo got there nice and early and plunked themselves down in seats opposite the Spurs’ bench. I’d like to think Gruden spent the evening studying Gregg Popovich’s interactions and taking mental notes.
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".
