Advocacy Group Wants Apology From LeBron James

Well, you knew this was coming.

An advocacy group for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities wants LeBron James to apologize for his “retarded” comment Saturday night following Game 3 against the Boston Celtics.

“LeBron James should apologize immediately.

UPDATE: Following Game 4 Monday night, LeBron James apologized for using the word “retarded.”

Nice bit of product placement – provided the audience has equally bad taste and is willing to wear shoes that carry free advertising for two of the world’s biggest moguls.

Giving the audience a free pair of Nikes (without crass advertising) was too much to ask?
