LeBron James Apologizes For Postgame Remark
James apologizes for saying 'retarded'
BOSTON (AP) – LeBron James says he's sorry for using the word
“retarded” in a postgame news conference.
The Miami Heat star muttered the word after Game 3 of the
Eastern Conference semifinals as he and Dwyane Wade listened to a
question about Wade's takedown of Boston guard Rajon Rondo.
James had his hand covering his mouth when he said “that's
retarded” as a reporter asked Wade whether the play that
dislocated Rondo's elbow was dirty.
After Game 4 on Monday night, James opened his postgame comments
by apologizing for using “the R-word.”
