DeMarcus Cousins has made his feelings about President Donald Trump very clear in the past, and he did so once again at Monday's Media Day for the New Orleans Pelicans. The All-Star big man was asked about his reaction to the protests that happened around the NFL this past weekend in reaction to Trump's remarks in Huntsville, Ala., last Friday, and Cousins didn't hesitate to express his frustration with the president. "He needs to get his s--- together," Cousins said.
It's been a constant struggle for the New Orleans Pelicans to find the right pieces to put around Anthony Davis after drafting him with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. A bevy of injuries and a few misguided roster moves has led to New Orleans only reaching the postseason once in Davis' first five years with the franchise, but things appear to be turning around.
The New Orleans Pelicans will be hosting its annual Media Day on Monday, leading up to the beginning of training camp on Tuesday at the team's practice facility in Metairie. New Orleans is heading into its first full season pairing All-Star big men Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins together and the team is hoping to show major improvement after a disappointing 34-48 finish to the 2016-17 season.
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".
