Squid Games Creator Responds To LeBron James Not Liking The Series Ending: "Have You Seen Space Jam 2? LeBron James Is Cool And Can Say What He Wants. But I Wouldn’t Change My Ending."

Squid Games Creator Responds To LeBron James Not Liking The Series Ending: "Have You Seen Space Jam 2? LeBron James Is Cool And Can Say What He Wants. But I Wouldn’t Change My Ending."

LeBron James didn't like the ending of viral Netflix series Squid Game, as he recently mentioned Anthony Davis. During a Lakers press conference, the 4x NBA champion spoke with his teammate about this series, exchanging 'reviews' of the ending. 

The King didn't like how the first season ended, wondering why the main character made certain decisions that could affect his life and those around him. While talking with AD, Bron revealed he expected the protagonist of the story to take a plane and travel to the US, which he didn't do. 

"Yeah, I did finish it," James said. "You finish it? You watched it? You done? Yeah, I didn’t like the ending though. I know they start it off with a Season 2, but, like, get on the f------ flight and go see your daughter, bro. Like, what are you doing?"

Now, the series creator, Hwang Dong-hyuk, replied to the King's comments, using a curious example to defend his story and its ending. Talking with Stuart Jeffries of The Guardian, Hwang took a shot at James' Space Jam 2, claiming Bron could make his own version and then they could discuss the endings. 

US basketball legend LeBron James, who loved the show, had this to say: “I didn’t like the ending though. What are you doing?”

Is James wrong? Hwang giggles from Seoul, before referencing one of James’s film career highlights. “Have you seen Space Jam 2?” he asks. Not all the way through, I reply. “LeBron James is cool and can say what he wants. I respect that. I’m very thankful he watched the whole series. But I wouldn’t change my ending. That’s my ending. If he has his own ending that would satisfy him, maybe he could make his own sequel. I’ll check it out and maybe send him a message saying, ‘I liked your whole show, except the ending.’”

LeBron has been doing interesting stuff in the world of entertainment. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar has perfectly adapted to the Hollywood lifestyle, premiering the Space Jam movie, earning a lot of money with his production company

Perhaps he can work on a deal with Netflix for the second season of the series and have a say on how things will end. But now, Hwang is more than pleased with his show and wouldn't change anything he did.
