LeBron James of Miami Heat, has issued an apology for his use of the word “retarded” during a postgame news conference of Game 3 of the 2011 NBA Eastern Conference Semifinals, according to reports by several international sports sites.

“I want to apologize for using the ‘R’ word after Game 3,” James said. “If I offended anyone, I sincerely apologize.”

The Miami superstar softly uttered the word after their Game 3 loss against Boston in the East Semis. He was covering his mouth when he was overheard saying “that’s retarded.” James and Dwyane Wade were listening to a question about Wade‘s takedown on Rajon Rondo at that time.

Rondo dislocated his elbow after getting fouled by Wade.

During Game 4‘s postgame interview on Monday night, James apologized for using “the R-word.”
