We'll give Mark Cuban this: After he ripped out Miami's heart, he at least put a little juice back into the Miami Beach economy Sunday night at LIV's back-stabbing Lil Wayne postgame bacchanalia. Fox Sports reports this morning he made at least $110,000 rain at the club -- including a $20,000 tip for the waitstaff lucky enough to draw a Sunday-night shift at the Fontainebleau.
After that? Well, things got a bit intimate with Cubes and his new trophy.
Cuban and the Mavs spent about four hours at LIV, slamming god knows how much club-priced liquor with Lil Wayne and Birdman. Cuban bought a massive, $80,000 gold-plated bottle of Ace of Spades for the team to pass around. And at some point, this happened:
When he left, he dished out $20K for LIV's waiters and later told the New York Post: "Worth every penny."
So what's a billionaire owner to do once the party's over and he's stumbled home with the best NBA title that $85 million a year in payroll can buy?
Take it away, Cubes:
this will sound weird. Im laying in bed. with the trophy next me.#dreamcometrue
