NBA icon LeBron James tears into Netflix hit Squid Game at press conference

Netflix hit Squid Game has wowed audiences the world over since its release, but the series' ending has been slammed by NBA legend LeBron James.

The Korean show has become the most watched show ever on the streaming service, racking up 111 million views to massively eclipse previous biggest hit Bridgerton.

Squid Game has almost doubled the number of viewers who saw Emily in Paris, which has been bumped out of the top 10 as a result of the new show's popularity.

And huge shows like Money Heist, Tiger King and Stranger Things are all more than 40 million views behind Netflix's latest sensation.

The Korean-language drama has amassed a huge army of fans worldwide courtesy of its unique storyline and penchant for dramatic twists.

But the shock which came at the very end of the season one finale didn't go down too well with LA Lakers forward James, who has himself entered the entertainment world with his starring role in Space Jam: A New Legacy.

In a video taken by a reporter at the Orange County Register in California, the NBA legend was seen speaking to team-mate Anthony Davis about the show.

"Yeah, I didn’t like the ending though," he said.

What did you think to the Squid Game finale? Let us know in the comments section.

"I know they start it off with a season two but, like, get on the f***ing flight and go see your daughter, bro. Like what are you doing?"

James was referring to main character Seong Gi-hun's decision at the end of the final episode to walk away from a flight which would have taken him to America to see his daughter.

Instead, he chose to remain in Korea, presumably to take down the organisers of the murderous game which saw every other competitor except himself die trying to win the grand prize.

The Lakers star went on to say Gi-hun should have been content with his winnings and the fact he managed to escape the game with his life, instead of going back for more.

"It’s [45 billion] won. Like, bro, he won the game," he added.

On the court, James is part of an exciting all-star trio with Davis and Russell Westbrook at the Lakers this season.

They all appeared together for the first time in a pre-season loss to the Golden State Warriors, and have one more practice game in Sacramento to gel before their first proper game of the campaign, also against the Warriors.

"It’s going to take a minute for us to become the team that we know we are going to be capable of being," James said after their loss at the Staples Centre.
