Flynn Robinson, Former Laker, Passed Away

Mr. Instant Point, as he was called by Chick Hearn, died Thursday — the cause was cancer.

His time in Los Angeles was short; he played in just 72 games averaging 15 minutes a game. He scored about 10 points on 49 percent shooting to go along with two assists and two rebounds. If he were to play 36 minutes a game that season, he would have averaged around 23 points, 6 assists, and 3 rebounds. Not bad for a guy coming off the bench.

For his NBA career, Robinson averaged 14. 5 points, 3.1 assists, 2.6 rebounds, and a field goal percentage of 45.6.

Flynn Robinson played for six teams during his eight year career starting with the Cincinnati Royals and ending with the San Diego Conquistadors (ABA). He made one All-Star team and won one championship with the 1972 Lakers.
