The Lakers star recently chatted with teammate Anthony Davis about Netflix’s smash South Korean drama series. But what did LeBron James say about Squid Game and its ending?

Lakers underwhelm in preseason

The Lakers are wrapping up their preseason ahead of the new NBA season getting under way on 19 October.

Much of the talk about the Lakers heading into the new season is how they’ll integrate all their new additions.

Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Trevor Ariza and the return of Rajon Rondo are just a few of the new faces who will don the Purple & Gold.

However, preparation hasn’t gone perfectly.

The Lakers are winless through five contests this preseason, and face the Kings on Thursday night.

Their latest loss was against the Warriors, where they were beaten 111-99.

What did LeBron and AD say about Squid Game?

Luckily for LeBron and his teammates they’ve had a welcome distraction from basketball in the form of Squid Game.

Squid Game is Netflix’s super-smash Korean survival series that has taken the world by storm.

As LeBron wrapped up his post-game interview against the Warriors, he started chatting to Anthony Davis about Squid Game.

When AD asked him if he’d finished the series, LeBron said: “Yeah, I did finish it. Did you finish it? You watched it? You done?

‘Yeah, I didn’t like the ending though. No, I know they started off with a season 2 but like, get on the flight, go see your daughter, bro. Like, what are you doing?”

Squid Game is Netflix’s biggest debut hit

While LeBron may not be the biggest fan of the Squid Game ending, the show has become a smash hit around the world.

On Tuesday, Netflix announced the South Korean drama had become its most popular series ever, drawing 111 million fans since its debut less than four weeks ago.

“Squid Game has officially reached 111 million fans – making it our biggest series launch ever!” tweeted Netflix.
