LeBron told the media that he was sorry for using an insensitive remark to answer one of their questions. From the 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.”
