CHICAGO -- It was Mike Ditka who said, "Those who live in the past are cowards and losers."

Write that down to repeat the next time someone whines about the games Derrick Rose didn't play last season.

As much fun as it was to debate and complain about his never-realized return date, the time for dwelling in the disappointments of the past are almost over. Just a few more months until he's actually back. It's easy to forget that Rose is this city's biggest star.

Like Ditka, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau doesn't believe in dwelling in the past. At least not after he dissects tape of it.

With that in mind, the future is closer than ever for Rose and the Chicago Bulls, now that the NBA released its schedule for the 2013-14 season.
