The Cleveland Cavaliers have already experienced losing a bona fide superstar in recent history, and their first priority this offseason was to not allow that to happen again with their current superstar, Kyrie Irving.
Earlier today, the Cavaliers formally announced that they reached a 5 year, $90 million max deal with Irving to stay in Cleveland and build their roster alongside recent No. 1 overall pick, Andrew Wiggins. With all notions pointing to Wiggins becoming the next big superstar, Cleveland fans have a lot to look forward to in the coming years.
Kyrie celebrated the news on Twitter earlier:
I’m here for the long haul Cleveland!!! and I’m ecstatic!! Super excited and blessed to be here and apart of something special.#ClevelandKID

While the words hold a nice sentiment, Kyrie’s dancing is a whole lot better:
Along with the video was this caption from Dexter Strickland, a former UNC guard:
5 o’clock this morning this dude wakes me up, I’m half sleep tryna celebrate with him lol, yal congratulate my brother @k1irving ! #DreamsComeTrue
Kyrie may be dancing now, as he should from his well deserved contract, but he still has a lot of work to do. Cleveland fans will hope now that Kyrie’s new contract is solidified, the team can move towards bringing LeBron James back.
Of course, Cavs owner Dan Gilbert can not accomplish that feat by himself, as he will need Wiggins and Irving to give James a reason to seriously consider returning to Cleveland. If he does, the Cavaliers will immediately be in the running for the NBA title next season.
