LOS ANGELES (AP) - Flynn Robinson, who was on the 1971-1972 Lakers team that won Los Angeles its first NBA title, has died at age 72.
The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/10WWLYd ) reports Robinson died Thursday at an LA hospital from cancer.
The reserve guard was dubbed "Mr. Instant Point" by Lakers announcer Chick Hearn. He averaged nearly 10 points in 16 minutes off the bench during the season.
