Bulls' Statement

The following statement is from John Paxson, the Chicago Bulls Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations, on behalf of the Bulls:

"Tex Winter was a basketball legend and perhaps the finest fundamental teacher in the history of our game. He was an innovator who had high standards for how basketball should be played and approached everyday. Those of us who were lucky enough to play for him will always respect his devotion to the game of basketball. His contributions to the Bulls organization will always be remembered."


The architect of the Triangle, and in some ways, the unsung hero of the Bulls' Dynasty in the 90s. I know he's not exactly an obscure name that never gets mentioned or anything, but being the innovator of the offense that the team used to such great effect, he definitely needs to be mentioned alongside Phil Jackson, Michael Jordan, and Scottie Pippen whenever you talk about the building blocks of those six championship teams.

96 is a good, long life, and his was full of accomplishments. Rest in Peace, Coach Winter.
