“I had to. We had just won the NBA championship. And it was such a unique moment. And there’s a backstory. We were in Miami. The night before I had taken some Mavs customers to this club, LIV. I’m nervous as hell. I’ve got these customers with me. I’m not drinking. The DJ spots me and he says, 'You know what we do to Cubans in Miami? We smoke ’em. Let’s go Heat!' This whole club is going, 'Let’s go Heat! Let’s go Heat!' So the next night we win, in Miami. We’re drinking champagne in the locker room. And one of the guys, Jason Terry, goes, 'We gotta go out.' I’m like, 'I got the spot.' I wanted to walk into that club holding that $ 90,000 bottle of champagne and the championship trophy just to shove it up their ass.”
