It’s a coincidence, of course, that between them Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony have gotten a total of 23 signature shoes from Jordan Brand—10 for Paul, 13 for Anthony, whose signature line has reportedly been discontinued. If that number seems incredibly high, it’s probably because hardly any of those shoes, save perhaps Melo’s early hybrid retro Jordan models, have been memorable.
Reggie Miller was not a very well-liked basketball player. Perhaps that is an understatement. People hated him, and he thrived on it. After all, he did name his autobiography I Love Being the Enemy. He actively sought out the ire of opponents and opposing fans alike, tormenting both Michael Jordan AND Spike Lee. Outside of Indiana—and perhaps his native L.A.—he wasn’t what you’d call marketable. He became a Hall of Famer without ever being blessed with a signature shoe.
Let’s just skip the formalities and cut right to the chase. Can the Houston Rockets, as currently constructed, win the NBA title this season? Can they beat not only the Golden State Warriors, but the Cleveland Cavaliers or the Boston Celtics or whoever comes out of the East? And, although Lil B finally lifted his curse on James Harden, can the Rockets overcome the apparent curses on coach Mike D’Antoni and Chris “Never Made the Western Conference Finals” Paul?
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".
