Before talking about his clutch 3-pointer that tied the game late in the fourth quarter and his defense on Paul Pierce  at the end of regulation, LeBron James  offered up an apology for using the word “retarded” to describe a question asked of Dwyane Wade  following a Game 3 loss to the Celtics  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  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.
