An apology from LeBron James about the ‘R’ word

Before talking about his clutch 3-pointer that tied the game late in the fourth quarter and his defense on Paul Pierce [1] at the end of regulation, LeBron James [2] offered up an apology for using the word “retarded” to describe a question asked of Dwyane Wade [3] following a Game 3 loss to the Celtics [4] Saturday night. James was heard muttering “that’s retarded” while Wade was being asked if he had any reaction to those who might think his play on Rajon Rondo [5] was dirty.

“First of all, I want to apologize for using the ‘R’ word after Game 3. If I offended anyone, I sincerely apologize,” said James, who scored 35 points and led the Heat to a 98-90 overtime win at TD Garden Monday night, pushing the Celtics to the brink of elimination Wednesday night in Miami.
