Chris Bosh said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra told the team to think about a possible three-peat as they headed to the offseason.

Bosh made the comment  during an interview on the last day of his trip to Mumbai, India. The Miami Heat big man said just after his team won the championship, their coach told the team to think about winning a historic third straight championship.

If they are able to win the Larry O'brien trophy next season, the Heat will become just the fourth franchise to complete a three-peat, following the Boston Celtics of the 1950s-'60s, the Chicago Bulls of the '90s and the Lakers between 1952-54 and 2000-02.

"We touched on it before we left; coach asked each of us to do his job," Bosh said. "He wished us well in the summer, have a good time, but think about it. Just put it in your minds so that when it is time to start back working, we can't just chill the whole summer. We have to get our work in. If we're serious about winning three in a row, we have to start the process and it's not going to be easy."

Miami's performance next season can potentially have large ramifications in the 2014 off-season. Heat executives are aware that the roster is aging and changes will have to be made soon. Though the team won the title last season, they were tested more than ever since the big three of James, Bosh and Wade were assembled.

And the Heat with undoubtedly face an even stiffer challenge next season, as several teams in their conference will be better, heading into the 2013-2014 season. An unsuccessful season, which is anything less than an NBA championship, will probably result in major adjustments to the team's roster.

"It's tough; especially with Derrick coming back. Brooklyn, of course, with Jason Kidd being the head coach and making that trade with Garnett, Pierce and [Jason] Terry," Bosh said. "It was already tough before, but now you've got about five or six teams who feel like they legitimately have a shot at winning an NBA title."
