A basketball legend that has brought us many happy memories… now it’s time to return the favor.
L.A. Times: … “I wish I could tell you this was a totally upbeat story, but it’s not, it’s tough,” Russ said. “Sometimes my father feels like he’s an old man who doesn’t have time to learn to talk again.”

Winter brightened considerably when Jackson recently visited on his way to his summer home in Montana. In typical Jackson fashion, it wasn’t announced, and none of Winter’s sons were there, just Tex and Phil.
Then came the phone call from Kupchak that really charged up the coach, a reminder that he had to get well soon so he could come to Los Angeles in November and pick up his championship ring.
“He really seems eager to make that happen,” said Brian, another son. “That’s something we’re planning on.”
The coach, it seems, just needs a little coaching. His family provided a mailing address: 32100 SW French Prairie Road, Number 228, Wilsonville, Ore., 97070.
After Tex Winter blessed our town with the triangle, perhaps it’s time for us to teach him about the full circle.
