Championships never come easy but for Larry Costello it seems that the end of his playing career was the start of something big. After 11 seasons, six All-Star appearances and an All-NBA Second Team nomination, Costello finally won a championship with the 76ers. Costello just played two games during the playoffs that season, but he does have a ring to show for it. Costello would win another championship as a coach with the Milwaukee Bucks in 1971.
