Nick Young almost pulls a JPP on the 4th of July

Clearly Nick Young did not watch Jason Pierre Paul's firework safety video before the 4th of July...

A video surfaced of Young picking up a lit firework, which exploded and almost took off his hand. Luckily no injury came out of the incident, but it has been a rough couple months for Nick Young. It was reported that Young and his fiancee at the time Iggy Azalea broke up over rumors that Young had cheated on her with his ex-girlfriend. 

As a professional athlete how stupid can you be? I get that you want to celebrate not having to date that trash "rapper" anymore, but act like you've been there before. It's not like he would be able to what  JPP did and turn his hand into a club. Nick Young has a hard enough time shooting with two hands as it is, so one hand might be the end of his NBA career. Or maybe he just didn't want to play for the Lakers and this was the only way to get out of it. Nick Young may have tried to pull a fast one under our noses. Either way, this is honestly more exciting news than signing Timofey Mozgov to a 4-year $64 million contract. The Lakers have to keep trying to make news in the offseason somehow.
