Lakers' Tex Winters Still Pushing Team to Championship

NPR's Tom Goldman profiles Tex Winter, the 80-year-old assistant coach of the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team. Now in his 56th year of coaching, the feisty and innovative Winter goes on the road less -- but shows no sign of slowing down -- as the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers pursue a 10th championship ring at the end of this season.
