He is credited as the inventor of the "Triangle Offense," which helped the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers win 11 NBA titles (and counting) under Phil Jackson with Winter as his trusted assistant and consultant for 10 of them.

Winter learned the principles of the Triangle under USC head coach Sam Barry during his playing career at Troy.
