The Clippers on Saturday moved to strengthen their backcourt and maybe even replace their starting point guard, signing free agent James Robinson to a five-year, $10.5-million contract. The 6-foot-2 Robinson spent last season with the Minnesota Timberwolves and the three before that with the Portland Trail Blazers, primarily as a shooting guard.

With the Laker bench at his back, Trail Blazer hopes on his shoulders and redemption on his mind, James Robinson needed only a couple of seconds for a play that will linger at least for days. Three games after he shot an airball with a chance for a late tie against Sacramento, his three-point basket at the buzzer Tuesday night at the Forum gave Portland a stunning 109-108 victory before 10,836, beating the Lakers emotionally and physically.

In the late 1950s, armed with a realtor's license and a strong desire to succeed, James Robinson began selling homes in the San Fernando Valley--at least in the tiny area of Pacoima where African Americans lived. Ignoring the horror stories of racism and the unspoken covenants that kept blacks out of neighborhoods outside Pacoima, he set up shop and went to work selling not just homes, but suburban dreams for fellow blacks.

The Portland Trail Blazers were without guard Rod Strickland and forward Clifford Robinson, but it didn't matter. They were playing the Clippers. James Robinson, starting his seventh consecutive game since Clyde Drexler was traded, scored 18 points as Portland won, 96-83, Monday night. No Clipper scored more than six field goals. The top scorer was Pooh Richardson with 14 points, as the Clippers dropped to 0-5 this season against Portland.

The Clippers thought they had found a starting point guard when they signed free agent James Robinson to a five-year, $10.5-million contract in the summer of 1997. But Robinson, who came to the Clippers after one season with Minnesota and three seasons with Portland, was waived Thursday to make room for Sherman Douglas. Douglas, on the injured list because of a sprained left groin, was activated and is expected to play tonight. Robinson, 28, averaged 7.6 points in 14 games this season, 7.

Clipper guard James Robinson appears to have a thing for Gund Arena in Cleveland. He had one of his best games as a Clipper there in Sunday's loss, scoring 26 points on 10-for-18 shooting, including making five of nine three-point shots. Playing for the Minnesota Timberwolves last season, Robinson scored 23 in the fourth quarter--including 20 points in a four-minute span--to nearly single-handedly erase the Cavaliers' 33-point lead. Cleveland held on to win that one too.

James Robinson gave money back in order to leave the Clippers. Robinson still had two years left on his contract at $2.1 million annually with a third year option for the same amount when he agreed to a settlement just so he could join another NBA team. He was released on March 18 by the Clippers. He signed with Minnesota on March 26. "[I'm playing] with a professional team," Robinson said of the Timberwolves, who lost to the Clippers on Thursday. "They treat you like a professional.

He was born James Robinson, but the only name he answers to is Hollywood. Unless it's Bill Fitch. The coach of the Clippers can call Robinson anything he wants, so long as he calls. And finally, after a long, frustrating season of waiting, Robinson is getting the call at last. With shooting guard Eric Piatkowski on the injured list because of a strained abdominal muscle, Robinson got a season-high 42 minutes Sunday night at the Sports Arena and made the most of it.

Clipper guard James Robinson rarely loses his temper but he lost it Wednesday night against the San Antonio Spurs, and the Clippers lost for the 17th time in 21 games, 102-87, before 14,982 at the Alamodome. Angry after Spur rookie forward Tim Duncan went over his back and stole a rebound, Robinson grabbed the ball and slammed it to the court with 8:17 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Clippers trailing, 83-74.

Free-agent guard James "Hollywood" Robinson, signed to a $10.5-million, five-year contract, hasn't played like a star after missing the exhibition season because of a foot injury. Robinson, who averaged 8.3 points and 1.3 assists with the Minnesota Timberwolves last season, has made only two of 16 shots in his last four games. "This is the worst I've ever played," said Robinson, who missed the only shot he took in the first half as the Clippers fell behind the Hornets by 12 points by halftime.

The creation of a nickname that sticks doesn't always make sense. An over-the-top television commentator spotted a hot-shooting teenager from Jackson, Miss., and promptly dubbed him "Hollywood" because the kid liked to wear shades. Years later, veteran guard James Robinson finally got to Hollywood--sort of--when the Clippers signed him as free agent in the summer. And the nickname survived stints at Alabama and NBA stops in Portland and Minnesota.
