NEW YORK -- Allen Iverson was on the bench, and the Barclays Center crowd was not happy about it. The Hall of Famer was technically a player, coach and captain of 3's Company -- one of the eight teams in the BIG3 -- but the fans weren't there to see him coach. Their "We want AI" chant was just as loud as the ovation Iverson received when he was introduced in the starting lineup. Iverson, 42, only put himself in the starting lineup because he wanted to avoid this situation.
The Chicago Bulls traded Jimmy Butler , arguably a top-10 NBA player on a top-five contract, to the Minnesota Timberwolves during Thursday's NBA Draft, and the blowback was swift and severe. How on Earth could they only get Kris Dunn , coming off an awful rookie season; Zach LaVine , coming off a torn ACL; and Lauri Markkanen, the No. 7 pick in the draft, in return for a bona fide superstar? On what planet would it make sense to part with their No. 16 pick in the draft, too?
NEW YORK -- On his way to the interview room at the Barclays Center on Thursday, De'Aaron Fox crossed paths with Josh Jackson, the prospect taken one spot before him in the NBA Draft. While Jackson's afro made his Phoenix Suns hat a bit of an awkward fit, Fox was wise enough to announce beforehand that he'd like a visor because of his voluminous hair. The Sacramento Kings , of course, provided one. Jackson was jealous. "It looks good, doesn't it?" Fox said.
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
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".
