Lebron James Apologizes For Using ‘R’ Word

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.”
