Seven. That's how many NBA Final games it takes for you to get broke. That's seven nights of endless beer, chicken wings, and even more beer. And although it was all worth it, you're left with no money to party like an NBA champ.
Lucky for you, there are plenty of other (cheap) ways to have fun. You won't be buying bottles of Dom Pérignon, making it rain, or sitting in the VIP. But hey, you can always pretend.
