No one embodies the spirit of Mod quite like Peggy Moffitt, L.A.'s own 1960s-era muse. Moffitt, model and collaborator with modernist designer Rudi Gernreich, appears in a number of memorable images from the period, including this black-and-white gem from "Who Are You, Polly Maggoo?" the 1966 cult French film by director and photographer William Klein that is a satirical send-up of the fashion industry. Seated at the far left, Moffitt, plays herself. She appears in only two scenes in the film, including this one, depicting a group of young models dressed in stripes, against a backdrop of stripes, applying their Kabuki-like makeup.

The hand that once wrote about daily NBA schedules on a greaseboard in the Lakers' locker room now composes daily specials on a surfboard propped against a sunset-colored truck. Kona Sunset Shrimp Tacos, two for $7. The distinctive voice that once boomed through the halls of Staples Center now is heard from underneath a tiny window; instead of ordering Lakers players into their uniforms, it is now taking office workers' orders for lunch. Welcome to Sam Choy's Pineapple Express, may I help you?

Rudy Gay is on his way to Toronto in the latest and most dramatic move in the Memphis Grizzlies' makeover, a person with knowledge of the situation told the Associated Press. The Grizzlies agreed to trade their star swingman to the Raptors on Wednesday, parting with the leading scorer on a team that has aspirations of making a run in the powerful Western Conference. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deal had not yet been announced. The Raptors gave up point guard Jose Calderon and forward Ed Davis in the deal, and another person familiar with the negotiations said the Grizzlies were in discussion with the Detroit Pistons to swap Calderon for Austin Daye and Tayshaun Prince.

Forward Tayshaun Prince, who has played his entire 11-year career with the Detroit Pistons, is headed to the Memphis Grizzlies in a three-team trade that will send forward Rudy Gay to the Toronto Raptors and point guard Jose Calderon to the Pistons, according to multiple reports citing unnamed sources. The reports appear to be accurate since all the players whose teams had games tonight were listed as inactive. The three-team deal includes swingman Austin Daye going from Detroit to Memphis, forward Ed Davis going from Toronto to Memphis and center Hamed Haddadi going from Memphis to Toronto.
