Reviews - What do customers think about Coach Tex Winter: Triangle Basketball?
Tex Winter the man and the coach Jul 1, 2008
Great book about Mr. Winter's childhood, military career, college basketball coaching, and of course NBA career. Not an Xs and Os book about the "triangle" or "triple-post," but full of nuggets such as how he helped Dennis Rodman, and how the wrong drink caused them to lose one game against the Jazz in the NBA Finals!
Tex Winter is a Great Teacher and Coach Jan 1, 2008
The Book inspire me a lot how to be a great coach. And inspire me the main concept of Triangle offense which is very important to my coaching career for teaching the youth how to paly basketball in Team Concept with a well designed offense stragety by Tex Winter!
Great coffee table book for the home! Aug 17, 2007
Ann Parr does an excellent narrative on Coach Tex Winter's life. A great read packed full of both vintage and recent photos as well as memorable quotes from family, friends, players and coaches in a superbly designed graphical format that is pleasing to the eyes. As a father and granddad, I highly recommend it as a gift for your kids - who could easily learn a thing or two from Tex's wisdom and philosophy on the importance of honesty, integrity and teamwork...not just in basketball, but in every aspect of one's daily life (a positive example that seems to be often missing in America these days).
Oustanding Basketball book by the best Offencive Coach ever - his nine NBA Championship rings prove it! Apr 27, 2007
Think Phil 'Jax' is THE MAN? Sorry, wrong answer. All nine of his Championship rings are the res- ponsibility of Texas E. Winter, former great NCAA player from Texas (1940's) and Coach. I am simply amazed that this virtually ageless man continues to be a top NBA Ast. Coach in the League in his '80's. Tex Winter for Pres.! Hey, he can't be worse than Bush/Clinton/Bush, Jr.!
Hooked from the Middle Jul 19, 2006
I read magazines and newspapers, not books. I had some free time recently and picked up this Tex Winter book. Although I like to watch basketball, I don't know much about the specific plays and strategies, and I didn't know who Tex Winter was. I flopped the book open -- to a middle page -- and started reading. I kept turning back toward the front of the book to find out what happened before, and then what happened before that, and pretty soon, I couldn't put the thing down. All the interesting quotes and stories by and about famous players and coaches got me hooked. And all the quotes and personal notes by Tex made me read more. It's great, and I'd recommend it for anyone who has any interest in basketball, or sports in general, or just likes inspirational personal stories. It's a "can't put down" book.
