As we all know, the Dallas Mavericks' won the NBA Champs title but it was the after party that seems to be getting all of ht buzz! Team owner Mark Cuban bought a bottle of champagne for his team, but this wasn't your everyday bottle....
it was huge even for of the 7-foot Dirk Nowitzki, (this pic showed up in his twitter feed) AND it cost $90,000. This came with your basic 22% tip...which if you"re a math person euqals to $20,000. The New York Post reports that this made up the entirety of his tab for the night, but we suspect Cuban bought more than that.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban spent $110,000 in four hours celebrating at club Liv at Miami's Fontainebleau after his Mavs beat the Heat to take the NBA Championship. Cuban spent most of it on a $90,000 bottle of Ace of Spades Champagne for teammates Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry(notes), Brian Cardinal(notes) and Shawn Marion(notes). After partying with the trophy until 5 a.m. yesterday and taking in a performance by Lil Wayne, Cuban left a $20,000 tip for the wait staff. "Worth every penny," he cheerily told us via e-mail.
It's true that you can tell a lot about a person by the way they tip...if they have thought for the hard work the wait staff puts in etc...but to me...it's a sign of what's happening in the bank account, let's be real! And we all know what's happening in Mark's! He's not just a good tipper....he's a good party thrower! He's financing the official parade for Dallas sometime this week:
Cuban repeated Monday that he will personally pay for the celebration. Dallas Mayor Dwaine Caraway says the city is in a budget crunch but still plans a parade, with details to be announced later.
Don't worry for Cuban though...it will be a long time before he or his future generations will have to worry about pinching a penny...According to Forbes, Cuban is ranked 459th on the "World's Richest People" list, with a net worth of $2.5 billion.
Now that the season is over...but before the parade...he's having a small vacation with some buddies in the Cayman Islands... Lorne Michaels and Alec Baldwin.
