The Cleveland Cavaliers and All Star PG Kyrie Irving agreed to a FULL 5 year, $90 million max extension Tuesday morning. Irving's agent, Jeff Wechslet, said David Blatt and Tyronn Lue were "incredibly impressive", and that's what helped sel Kyrie on this deal. Team owner Dan Gilbert had this to say on his Twitter account:
While Kyrie tweeted out his own message for the fans:
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— Kyrie Irving (@KyrieIrving) July 1, 2014
The extension can be signed as early as July 10.
The Indians were in the city of angels last night, Los Angeles. Unfortunately, hitting the ball was a devil of a time as the team, losing 1-0 to the Dodgers. Corey Kluber got the start, and the loss, going 6.2 innings, giving up 6 hits, 1 earned run and recorded 5 strikeouts. The Tribe will be back at it again late tonight, as Justin Masterson is expected to go against Josh Beckett. First pitch is at 10:10 PM.
Also, don't forget that the United States will take on Belgium this afternoon in the World Cup knockout round. The match starts at 3 PM on ESPN.
Popular, cult fan favorite, television comedy "Community" has been saved! NBC cancelled the show this year weeks after its season 5 finale. Yahoo and Yahoo screen have picked up the show for a sixth season with 13 new episodes! I for one am VERY happy to not have lost a great, smart, clever comedy.
