Ahoy, Commodore, permission to leave the ship? Cedric Ceballos didn't turn out to be a superstar after all, merely an extended rental. He averaged 22 points his first season, nicknamed himself "Chise"--short for franchise--helped reestablish the Lakers' credibility, then went for a houseboat trip and sailed off the end of his Laker career. Friday he was returned to Phoenix, whence he came. Jerry West taketh, Jerry West returneth for a refund.

Free-agent guard Rumeal Robinson signed a contract Friday with the Lakers. Terms were not released. Robinson, 29, averaged 5.7 points and 3.3 assists in 43 games for the Portland Trail Blazers last season. In 14 starts, he averaged 10.5 points and 5.3 assists. "We're excited about the addition of a veteran guard who is capable of running a team," Laker General Manager Mitch Kupchak said.

This time, he was told to go to Arizona. Destined for employment and not an in-season water skiing break at one of its lakes, Cedric Ceballos became a member of the Phoenix Suns again Friday, traded by the Lakers along with Rumeal Robinson for Robert Horry and Joe Kleine, a deal that brings to Los Angeles a better defensive player and someone who has shown the ability to accept a role. Ceballos, of course, struggled in both departments. His considerable scoring potential, 21.

The New Jersey Nets acquired small forward Johnny Newman from the Charlotte Hornets on Friday for point guard Rumeal Robinson. The Nets said neither player was expected to be in uniform tonight when New Jersey plays the Hornets at Charlotte. Newman, a 6-foot-7 forward who will be a free agent at the end of the season, is expected to share playing time with Chris Morris. A seven-year veteran who also played for New York and Cleveland, Newman was averaging 13.0 points and 3.2 rebounds.

Coach Del Harris on Friday made his first lineup change not prompted by an injury, promoting Rumeal Robinson to starting shooting guard and returning Byron Scott to his reserve role. Harris said he made the move because this allows Robinson to play immediately after warming up just before tipoff and the start of the second half, rather than letting his bothersome right Achilles' tendon stiffen up. But it also comes as Scott has been struggling.

Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany has issued a reprimand and censure order for Michigan's basketball player Rumeal Robinson for public statements he made about officials after last week's Michigan-Iowa game. Delany said Robinson broke conference regulations when he criticized referees in a postgame news conference after Michigan's 78-76 loss last Saturday. A spokesman from Delany's office today would not comment on what comments Robinson made.

The New Jersey Nets traded disgruntled point guard Mookie Blaylock and injured forward Roy Hinson to the Atlanta Hawks for guard Rumeal Robinson on Tuesday. The trade cleared the way for Kenny Anderson to be the Nets' starting point guard, and for Blaylock to start for the Hawks. Anderson, a second-year pro, led the Nets in scoring and assists during the exhibition season.

As he was touring the Louvre last summer, or pausing on his morning strolls of the boulevards of Paris to inspect the canvases of the various street artists, Rumeal Robinson thought a lot about how art imitates life, and the way life imitates art. He thought about the gallery he intends to open someday, the one that will enable him to exhibit the works of undiscovered geniuses such as himself.

Magnified by fate in the vast Seattle Kingdome, he could feel the eyes of millions of Americans trained squarely on him. In eerie silence, he bounced a basketball once, twice, several times, then made the free throws that won the 1989 national championship for the University of Michigan with three seconds remaining in overtime. Very few eyes follow him today.

Rumeal Robinson made the first free throw and stepped away, his right fist in the air. The burden of underachievement--Michigan's and his own--was almost gone. With three seconds left in the first overtime national championship game in 26 years, he had tied the score against Seton Hall. Back to the line, one more free throw. He made it, and with it gave Michigan an 80-79 overtime victory in front of 39,187 at the Kingdome for its first National Collegiate Athletic Assn. championship.
