MANILA, Philippines — Hwang Dong-hyuk, "Squid Game" creator, clapped back at NBA superstar LeBron James after the Lakers forward said that he didn't like the ending of the popular Netflix series.

Hwang was interviewed by The Guardian, asking him what's his reaction to LeBron's comment. 

"Have you seen 'Space Jam 2'?" Hwang said.

"LeBron James is cool and can say what he wants. I respect that. I'm very thankful he watched the whole series," he added. 

Hwang then said that LeBron should create his own sequel. 

"If he has his own ending that would satisfy him, maybe he could make his own sequel," Hwang said.

"I'll check it out and maybe send him a message saying, 'I liked your whole show, except the ending'," he added. 

LeBron and teammate Anthony Davis were two of the millions around the world who watched "Squid Game."

LeBron said he likes the show except for the ending. 

"I didn't like the ending though," Lebron said. 

"I know they start it off with a Season 2 but, like, get on the f---ng flight and go see your daughter, bro. Like, what are you doing?" he added.
