Lakers' Nick Young holds exploding firework in video

LOS ANGELES (AP) It looks like Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young hasn't learned much about fireworks safety from New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.

TMZ Sports has posted a Snapchat video of Young holding up a firework in his hand as it explodes. TMZ says the video was taken at a Fourth of July party, and Young wasn't injured.

The Lakers say they have no comment on it. Young's agent hasn't responded to a request for comment.

Pierre-Paul is featured in a public service announcement produced by the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission about fireworks safety and released last week. He shows off his mangled right hand in the video. Part of Pierre-Paul's hand had to be amputated last year following a fireworks accident.
