Winters, Gilmore and Rodman in 2011 Hall of Fame Class
HOUSTON (AP) -- Three men with ties to the Chicago Bulls are part of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame's Class of 2011.

Tex Winter was the innovator of the ``Triangle'' offense. He served as coach Phil Jackson's assistant on all six Bulls championship teams.

He'll be joined in the Hall by longtime NBA and ABA star Artis Gilmore. Gilmore played 482 games for the Bulls during the 1970s and `80s.

And also in this year's class is Dennis Rodman, who won championships with both the Detroit Pistons and Chicago.
