Sad to hear the news on Tex Winter he was a genius. I was blessed to learn the triangle offense from him while playing for the @chicagobulls. R.I.P. and condolences to his family.

Rest In Peace Tex Winter. A cosmic mind and heart, a visionary who helped grow the game of basketball into one of my favorite things, into a vehicle for human potential to express itself. That was such a satisfying feeling when he was a @Lakers sitting there on the bench. Bless.
