While most people were fast asleep early Tuesday morning, Kyrie Irving was getting things done.

Just before 2 a.m. ET on Tuesday, Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert tweeted that the point guard had agreed to sign a five-year extension with the team. The deal is worth a reported $90 million.

When 5 a.m. came around, Irving apparently woke fellow basketball player Dexter Strickland, who is also from New Jersey, so that the two could celebrate the new deal. Irving definitely had more juice than his buddy did at that time in the morning.
