Gar Forman wore his summer tan well. The general manager was in good spirits during Monday's media day, looking very comfortable with his standing in the franchise. John Paxson? Same story for the Bulls' VP of basketball operations. Intense as usual, but no sign of stress caused by job security.
Dwyane Wade is all in on what NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been doing throughout the early part of the NFL season. The new Bulls star is all in on any message athletes can convey these days when it comes to anti-violence.
There's a certain refreshing honesty to Dwyane Wade these days. Maybe it comes with age or just maybe the veteran has learned that expectations are for others to dwell on. "There's no expectations right now,'' Wade said recently, when asked about what he expected from his new team going into this season.
The juice was no longer worth the squeeze when it came to Derrick Rose. Whether it was eye-rolling statements to the media, his inability to stay out of the training room, dealing with the buffoonery of Camp Rose when it came to his future earnings, or the fact that privately there were more and more in the Bulls organization that felt the point guard believed the Rose brand was more important than the team logo, a break-up was all but unavoidable.
A woman suing Derrick Rose of sexual assault said on Thursday that she doesn't know how the case against the NBA point guard would end, "But I want people out there to know they can speak out and not be afraid and not have to be in the suffering stage.'' Known as "Jane Doe'' in the court filings, the 30-year-old Los Angeles woman originally filed a lawsuit back in August 2015, accusing Rose and two other men of breaking into her apartment and raping her in 2013.
The shadow of Michael Jordan isn't fading anytime soon. Even on the eve before Bulls board chairman Jerry Reinsdorf was being enshrined as a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, he was answering questions about his former all-world player turned Charlotte owner.
The player rating numbers have been leaked for weeks, but when Madden '17 hits the public on Tuesday, the continual disrespect for Bears quarterback Jay Cutler by the gaming franchise will be official. Cutler's overall ranking to start the season will be an 80.
Dwyane Wade isn't much into expectations. A new area code isn't about to change that. "There's no expectations right now,'' Wade said recently. "That's you guys' [the media] job to come up with what our record is going to be or what our shooting percentage is going to be.
It will work. How? What it will exactly look like? The "three alphas'' couldn't say. But what Dwyane Wade, Jimmy Butler and Rajon Rondo promised was that they would make it work. They have to make it work.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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
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".
