Was very fortunate to learn the (Tex Winter) Triangle Offense, along with @cvivianstringer, from then longtime @Lakers assistant @coach_jcleamons, and I always liked the use of the "blind pig" to free up the guard vs pressure in the full court.

Completely agree w/Shawn and it doesn't make Beilein a bad guy. He just wasn't the warm and fuzzy type. Steve Deace also made a good point about an advisor like Tex Winter to Hoiberg. @SamWebb77 thought Jay Smith my choices Gary Williams, Thad Matta, JT3...

Tex Winter, the originator of the Triangle offense, was the Long Beach State Head Coach in 1983. He was replaced by Dave Buss. If that name sounds familiar to Mount fans, The Mount beat Buss & Wisconsin Green Bay in the 1981 D2 Semifinals. Buss lasted one season at Long Beach.
He came back last winter and convinced her to give him a cheque ... Johnston’s family grave site is in Fort Worth, Tex., and, oddly, Braun’s brother is buried there, a source said. ...

The game can turn on a trifle - Tex Winter
So word spread quickly last month after a disheveled 30-year-old man appeared on the trail in North Carolina, acting erratically and clad in a heavy winter coat and knit cap ... a 35-year-old from ...
He "only" had Shaq? Yeah, just the most dominant player of his era. I get it noe . I guess in your mind Kevin Love is HOF & Glenn Rice aint. Tex Winter & Phil Jackson both in the Hall along with Dr Buss. Kobe had a red carpet. (LAL vs IND)

Tex Winter used to say "don't feed pearls to swine." It's a biblical verse (Matthew 7:6) - Obviously @Money23Green's teammates are not swine. Simple solution - start playing with more cerebral and skilled players. https:// twitter.com/MrLightNYC/sta tus/1131620946501148673   …

Those who succeed often know what they dont know and being in people to help them. Billy Donovan had his Larry Shyatt. Jim Calhoun had George Blaney. In the NBA Phil Jackson had his John Bach and Tex Winter. Juan's top asat hire will likely be the most important thing he does

FWIW, that concept goes back at least to Del Harris when he was coaching (those were the roles in his offense), and probably further. Maybe Tex Winter/triangle, for all I know.

Don’t forget PJ never won a championship without Tex Winter

Right! They needed each other. Some Jordan fans have a tendency to down play the greatness of Phil Jackson. I am not a LeBron fan (Laker fan) I can tell you the greatest compentery piece that Jordan or James had was Jordan having Phil Jackson (Tex Winter’s Triangle offense.

I remember Tex Winter was mad at MJ for ignoring the Triangle and running his own iso play. Tex said, "there's no I in team." Jordan countered with, "but there is an 'I' in winning."

Makesi...how does KD get the benefit of Pop through Kerr, but LeBron doesn't get the benefit of Riley through Spoelstra??? #HowSway??? And are you kidding me? Walton is Phil Jacksons lineage as much as Kerr is...so is Derek FisherWhat did Tex Winter ever win?
Makesi Alexander 22/05/2019 03:18
Most would credit Tex Winter for Phil's success.. There is a clear line... Only Paul Silas I'd give so pedigree to.. The others.. Where is the lineage? Blatt.. Mike Brown.. Spoelstra, Lue, Walton...
I concurr because the basic ideas of the triangle offense were initially established by HOF coach Sam Barry at the University of USC. His system was further developed by former Houston Rockets & KSU basketball head coach Tex Winter, who played for Barry in the late 1940s...

Del Harris and Kurt Rambis failed as coaches for the Lakers. Doug Collins failed as Bulls coach. Both teams needed Phil and Tex Winter to win. No coach takes bottoms feeders to a championship. All winning coach’s have great players.

I believe the credit should be split between Tex Winter and Johnny Bach. It was Bach’s Doberman defense that turned Pippen into a HOFer

Tex Winter triangle made everyone tough the ball. Phil great mediator convincing #Jordan that averaging 37ppg wasn’t helping. Needed to trust teammates . MJ just needed Scottie to be Robin to his Superman. He wasn’t even an All Star in ‘91. Scottie started to take off in ‘92

MJ loss with every coach before the great Tex Winter and Frank Hamblen arrived with Phil and created a system (triangle) that was perfect. So I disagree !

False. First of Tex winter installed it. MJ did have dribble moves, the same as LeBron, who actually gets most his buckets in transition or just running into people. MJ post/footwork is superior to LeBrons. MJ simplified the game
