The Boston Celtics have finally beaten the Miami Heat in the 2011 NBA Playoffs. By winning Game 3, the Celtics have slowly inched themselves back into the series. Boston fans around the world currently are in a frenzy and will be louder than ever in Game 4. Everyone seems to be excited about the series again, except the Miami Heat, and especially LeBron James.

During the post-game interview, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade and forward LeBron James were asked a variety of questions regarding the loss in Game 3. One female reporter had stepped in and proceeded to ask the following question:

“What do you have to say about people that may think that you’re playing somewhat dirty tonight or out of character?”

The question was in regards to the Rondo incident during the game. The Boston guard got tangled up with Wade and fell to the floor dislocating and breaking his elbow.

Wade and James did not quite understand to whom the question was being directed to, which prompted Wade to ask, “Who?”

The female reporter continued to elaborate by stating:

“In general, for people who are watching the game, some of us who work the game? Just in general or is that just a level of competition and emotions.”

Immediately, after the last word was said by the reporter, LeBron James interrupted by saying, “That’s retarded.”

Ladies and gentlemen, sports fans around the world. While we do not in any way promote James’ behavior, one can admit that the reporter’s questions regarding “dirty play” was ridiculous.

Many would agree that the questions simply did not make the most sense. The questions were not just a sign of annoyance, but to the players, it felt as if the reporter was rubbing salt in their wounds.

After the interviews were completed, LeBron James in another interview, admitted to stating that the questions were indeed retarded. However, the Heat forward mentioned that he did not intentionally direct his words of anger to the female reporter.

Watch LeBron James call the reporter “retarded.”
