Karl-Anthony Towns was already the face of an NBA franchise before he'd ever voted in a presidential election. But the sudden, awesome power of a superstar's platform did not discourage the 22-year-old from flexing off the court and, he says, "addressing the elephant in the room." Never has. Now that sticking to sports has become impossible—the daily bombardment of news, the hourly bombast of social feeds—he never will.
Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant is listed as probable to play against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night, per Chris Haynes of ESPN.com, and made his intentions clear earlier in the day. "I feel good right now," he said. "I plan on playing." It will be Durant's second trip back to Oklahoma City after he signed with the Warriors in the summer of 2016.
Washington Wizards sharpshooter Bradley Beal drilled two three-pointers en route to 23 points during Monday's 99-88 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. In the process, he became the youngest player in NBA history to make 700 career threes, per ESPN Stats & Info. On the way to history, Beal, at 24 years and 145 days old, passed Kyrie Irving (24 years, 364 days), Gilbert Arenas (24 years, 316 days), Kevin Durant (24 years, 198 days) and J.R. Smith (24 years, 149 days).
Embiid is larger than life. Simmons is outrageously advanced. Covington is the ultimate NBA rags-to-riches story. The Process worked. Add it all up, and is there a more entertaining NBA team than the Sixers right now?
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".
