The Las Vegas Summer League final four delivered on its promise with top rookies Lonzo Ball (16 points, 10 assists in only 21 minutes) and Dennis Smith Jr. (21 and six) showing that they have all-star pedigree and very likely several All-Star appearances ahead of them. If you watched Sunday night's Lakers-Mavericks game, though, you could not help but find a University of Arizona basketball imprint just about wherever you looked.
The professional 3-on-3 basketball league founded by actor, producer and music legend Ice Cube and entertainment executive Jeff Kwatinetz made its debut Sunday in Brooklyn -- and former Shadow Mountain High and Arizona standout Mike Bibby hit two shots worth four points each. The BIG3, featuring eight teams of retired basketball players all playing on one day at one location, began its season in front of 15,177 fans at Barclays Center, with the 4-point rule in effect.
Regrets? Suns fans have had a few. Whether you think it starts and ends with the coin flip that cost the Valley Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (then Lew Alcindor), or that letting Joe Johnson leave as a budding dynasty may have been building. Maybe you think Isaiah Thomas trade was a huge mistake. Me? It’s letting Steve Kerr get away. He’s always seemingly above the fray.
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".
