The last, and only other, Coug to win a championship was Gene Conley. He won three straight -- in 1958-59, 1959-60 and 1960-61 -- as Bill Russell's backup on the Boston Celtics. He also won a World Series championship as a standout pitcher on the 1957 Milwaukee Braves.
Conley played six seasons in the NBA. In 33 total playoff games over the course of the three championship years he averaged 5.1 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.
The only other Coug to come close to an NBA title was Craig Ehlo, whose 1985-86 Houston Rockets lost to Boston, 4 games to 2, in the finals.
James Donaldson, another Coug with a long NBA career, came no closer to an NBA ring than the Western Conference finals with the Mavericks in 1987-88.
