Red Robbins

Austin "Red" Robbins (born September 30, 1944 in Leesburg, Florida) is a retired American basketball player.

Robbins, a 6'8" forward/center, starred at the University of Tennessee in the 1960s and then played professionally for the American Basketball Association's New Orleans Buccaneers (1967–1970), Utah Stars (1970–1972), San Diego Conquistadors (1972–1973; 1973–1974), Kentucky Colonels (1973; 1974–1975), and Virginia Squires (1975–1976). Robbins was nicknamed for his red hair, as well as his fiery personality, and he gained a reputation as one of the toughest players in the league, grabbing over 6,000 rebounds in his career. Robbins was also a solid offensive contributor with above-average shooting range, and in Game 7 of the 1971 ABA Finals, he made eleven out of twelve field goals to lead the Utah Stars to a league title.
