  • Fred 'Tex' Winter dies at 96

After Basketball Hall of Famer and legendary assistant coach Fred "Tex" Winter died Wednesday at the age of 96, former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen took to Twitter to pay tribute to the man who helped Pippen and the Bulls win six titles in the 1990s.

Lakers head coach Luke Walton also expressed gratitude for Winter during his playing career.

Former Bulls forward Scottie Pippen, who was also part of the six championship campaigns, shared how Winter made them run the ideal triangle offense.

He was inducted to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2011. Winter later moved to the Lakers, where he continued coaching players on the offensive strategy that propelled the Bulls to win six NBA Championship titles.
