Gregg Popovich does a lot that seems simple, but is powerful. Those actions are powerful because men of his stature aren’t known — or in some cases, expected — to behave this way. Take the recent decision to bench club legend Tony Parker for youngster DeJounte Murray. This move could have caused a locker-room rift had Popovich not given Parker the respect to talk him through it.
Everyone has a Ronaldinho moment, an instant where he did something with the ball that changed the reality of what you thought was possible. Not a bending or twisting of reality, but an expansion of it. There’s nothing surreal about Ronaldinho toe-poking the ball against Chelsea from outside the box while being cornered by multiple defenders except that he, unlike almost every other player before and after him, had the presence of mind, vision, and audacity to try it.
The Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers played Monday night and the main event was a weird-ass fake brawl in the locker rooms. SB Nation Staff Writers Tyler Tynes and Zito Madu chat about whatever the happened:Tynes: So, Zito, I still don’t know what happened last night. Do you? Madu: Apparently Chris Paul led his men through a secret passageway in the stadium to defend the honor of his new team and coach after being disrespected by Blake Griffin, serial glass and team employee puncher.
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".
