I’ve heard a lot of chatter about keeping the Warriors’ “core four” together. Sure, that’s a priority. Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green make this team a perennial contender no matter what players you put around them. The Warriors will make sure they stick around for several years. But remember this, as we approach NBA free agency and then the 4th of July, we also approach the one-year anniversary of Kevin Durant’s decision to move to the Bay Area.
When your team is compared to the 100-loss 1985 San Francisco Giants, you know you’re doing something historic. When it’s all said and done, this year’s version of the Giants may well be the worst since the franchise moved west. If this squad had been the 1958 version, the city might have sent them back to New York. Will this team lose 100? They’re on pace to lose 105. It’s hard to say what will happen, because it won’t be the same squad in the second half.
The news broke last night during our show that Warriors’ special advisor Jerry West was likely leaving the team for a similar role with the Clippers. The Logo With The Midas Touch is apparently taking his talents to the Southland, where he has a home and where he began building his great NBA career as a player and executive. One thing Jerry West can do is build. Ask the Lakers, Grizzlies, and this current solid-gold version of the Warriors.
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".
