Bulls to open season in Miami?
Before the NBA officially releases the schedule, some details tend to trickle out. According to longtime Heat writer Ira Winderman, Miami will open the 2013-14 season at home against the Bulls on Oct. 29.
Of course, that's the night Heat players will receive championship rings. The Bulls were the guest during Miami's ring night in 2006 and beat the Heat 108-66.
This season's opener will be significant for the return of Derrick Rose after 18 months off with a knee injury, although he is expected to play in the preseason.
