Guard, #21

 

Nicknamed "Instant Offense" by Lakers broadcaster Chick Hearn, the 6-foot-1 guard was the top scoring reserve in the 1971-72 season. He averaged nearly 10 points in fewer than 16 minutes per game, helping the Lakers win 33 consecutive games and an NBA championship. The next season, Robinson played in six games before being traded to the Baltimore Bullets on Dec. 6, 1972. In recent years, Robinson has played in 60-and-over tournaments across the country and participated in a program that teaches underprivileged children how to fish.
