Former rivals like Luol Deng, Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger now welcomed by Heat

Josh McRoberts, Danny Granger and Luol Deng haven't exactly had many fans within the Miami Heat organization in the past.

McRoberts delivered an elbow to the throat of LeBron James last year, raising Heat ire. Granger has had more than a few dustups with the Heat at playoff time. Deng was just about unstoppable on the night that he played a starring role in ending Miami's franchise-record 27-game winning streak two seasons ago.

All has been forgotten and forgiven now.

When the Heat opened training camp on Saturday, McRoberts, Granger and Deng were all in Miami colors — part of an offseason revamping of the roster by the franchise that has won the last four Eastern Conference titles.

Clearly, from past rivalries, some respect must have been born.
