Kyrie Irving is a happy man. Despite reports of mutual discord over the past year between player and team, Irving agreed to a five-year, $90 million extension with the Cleveland Cavaliers at the the dawn of free agency. What better way to celebrate the biggest moment of your professional career than some early-morning dancing?

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
Live it up, Kyrie; you’ve earned it.
All Cavs fans should be joining him in celebratory boogies, actually. By agreeing to terms with Irving, drafting Andrew Wiggins, and hiring David Blatt, there’s finally legitimate reason for optimism in Cleveland. And if the Cavaliers can actually convince LeBron James to come home? Dan Gilbert will surely host the dance party.
Is Cleveland’s future bright?
