Cuban leaves $20k tip after post-championship revelry

Celebrating his first title was a sweet experience for Dallas owner Mark Cuban.

Even if it came with a steep price.

The New York Post reports that Cuban early Monday morning at the chic Miami Beach nightspot Liv at Miami’s Fountainebleau Hotel after the Mavericks wrapped up their first NBA title.

Cuban spent most of it on a $90,000 bottle of Ace of Spaces Champagne for teammates Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry, Shawn Marion and Brain Cardinal. The Larry O’Brien Trophy was in the middle of the celebration, which curiously came at the same club where LeBron James’ mother partied before she was arrested earlier this year after a tiff with a parking attendant.

Cuban left a $20,000 tip for the wait staff after the celebration, which continued until 5 a.m and included a performance by rapper Lil Wayne.

“Worth every penny,” Cuban told the Post by e-mail.
