Starry-eyed idea Adam Silver's first official act as NBA commissioner should be a tribute to David Stern and to common sense. In honor of his predecessor's 30 years as the league's top boss, Silver should increase the number of All-Star players from 24 to 30. Such a move would constitute a win-win-win by reducing the number of real and perceived snubs, increasing exposure for more of the game's top players and adding intrigue to...

Multicity film premieres, promotional tours and a months-long award season mean a whole lot of dressing up. But today's long run of red carpets does create an opportunity for an actress to tell a story with fashion choices. And so far this season, Amy Adams' story has been to remind us that she's not just the nice girl. Sure, she's played a Disney princess, a nun, a Muppets superfan from Smalltown U.S.A. and the doting (though strong) wife of a religious leader. PHOTOS: Movie scenes from 'American Hustle' But Adams' latest role in "American Hustle" casts her as a glamorous grifter in sexy-as-hell vintage Halston dresses with cleavage so arresting it deserved its own screen credit.

EUGENE, Ore. - There have been times when UCLA sophomore guard Jordan Adams has thought about last season's Pac-12 Conference tournament championship game. The Bruins reached the final riding on Adams' back. They then were manhandled in the title game by Oregon because of his foot. Adams suffered a broken bone on the last play against Arizona in the semifinals and could only watch the final. “I wished I could have played,” Adams said. “We were a hot team. But things happened.” BOX SCORE: UCLA Bruins 70, Oregon Ducks 68 Things happened Thursday.

Moss Adams, one of the nation's largest accounting firms, has launched an online exchange for trading film and other tax credits. Called the Moss Adams Tax Credit Exchange , the marketplace allows film producers and other companies with tax credits to match up with buyers, converting credits they can't use into cash they can reinvest in their business. Buyers can purchase credits online, helping them offset state taxes owed. “We're proud to bring the exchange to our clients and future members and expect it to transform the way tax credits are purchased and sold,” said Rob O'Neill, state and local tax partner at Moss Adams.

One nice thing about the contemporary world of comedy is its abundance of small gifts. You can thank the Internet for this; it may have destroyed bookstores and record stores and much else I hold/held dear, but it created the video version of the occasional, even random comic essay (what S.J. Perelman, borrowing from the French, called his feuilletons , "little leaves"). Television, sometimes distinct from the Web, but sometimes in concert with it, has picked up on some of these rhythms; but in the new media egg-basket, and in the minds of your children, America, it is all pretty much the same thing anyway.

Adam Silver won't have to familiarize himself with the minutiae of the NBA's collective bargaining agreement upon succeeding David Stern as league commissioner Saturday. Silver negotiated that deal himself. It was the most high-profile assignment Silver undertook during a 22-year apprenticeship that widely is believed to have prepared him for the league's top job. The longtime lawyer started as a special assistant to Stern before running the entertainment division and becoming deputy commissioner in 2006.

Imagine a Grammy trip for the Lakers that starts in London before going on to Paris, Rome, Madrid and Berlin. Maybe they would rename it the Royal Albert Hall trip. Incoming NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said this week he was open to the idea of European expansion, provided the global economy recovers and potential host cities construct modern arenas. And if the NBA goes overseas, it would probably go all in. "It's most likely that if we were to come to Europe," Silver told reporters before the Brooklyn Nets defeated the Atlanta Hawks at a sold-out O2 Arena in London on Thursday night, "it would be with a division rather than a single team, for the sake of logistics.
