Lord of the triangle offense and key Phil Jackson mentor, longtime Los Angeles Lakers consultant, Tex Winter, has suffered what appears to be a stroke. Winter was in Kansas set to attend a reunion of the Kansas State basketball team, when he apparently suffered the stroke and fell in the shower. According to reports, he was taken to a hospital where his condition has improved slightly in the last couple of hours. Phil Jackson spoke with reporters after this morning’s shoot-around and said that Winter’s family told him, “Take your mind off of this and put it where it belongs right now.” Jackson, after having been in contact with the family, went on to say that despite the difficult circumstances, they are relatively at ease with the situation. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Winter and his family for a speedy and complete recovery.
