Netflix’s Squid Game has taken the world by storm, as it has now become the streaming platform’s most successful show yet. It was also said that Netflix paid $21.4 million for Squid GameBeing a big trending topic right now, it was certain the show was going to get parodied. It seems an NBA star decided to dress up as one of the characters as well.

Phoenix Suns got their second win of the season after beating the Cavaliers. They won 101-92, thanks to a huge run. While it was certainly a great win, JaVale McGee was the actual topic of discussion for an entirely different reason.

He was a talking point because he came out to the arena while wearing a Squid Game costume ahead of the Suns’ game against the Cavaliers. The player has a tendency of making headlines for huge reasons and he did so again recently.

The true hero in the game was Devin Booker, but JaVale McGee is certainly going to be talked about for a longer time. McGee also once wore a costume inspired by the ‘Grinch’ back in 2018.

Interesting note: Squid Game costumes are banned in an NYC school district.

As for Squid Game, the show managed to far surpass Bridgerton to become the biggest launch for a new show on Netflix. Squid Game has become a global phenomenon and that is unlikely to change anytime soon. Let’s hope season 2 comes soon.
