Amid the “struggles” that the Miami Heat have had to endure this season, Chris Bosh still doesn’t see this team as vulnerable — perhaps not as much as the rest of the national media does.
In fact, Bosh told the Indiana Pacers media on Friday (prior to their big win over the Pacers on Friday night) that there is one obstacle that the Heat need to overcome this postseason in order to complete the rare three-peat. However, the answer wasn’t the Indiana Pacers, Brooklyn Nets, San Antonio Spurs nor the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Chris Bosh on which team in the league is the #Heat's best competition: "Ourselves."

I guess it’s the right answer to say when you’re the defending back-to-back NBA Champions, however, the fact that he said it to the Pacers media says something. I think.
Bosh is a very smart and meticulous man. He knows that everything that he — or any Heat player for that matter — says will be placed under a microscope. Perhaps he wanted to reassure the Pacers that, even though they have beat the Heat twice this season, the Heat are still the defending champs.
Maybe he didn’t intend anything by the remark. But, in a way, he isn’t wrong.
