The Champagne of Champions
Another NBA Finals win means another champagne shower celebration. The Milwaukee Bucks won their second franchise title and first in the last 50 years earlier this week, and immediately the sports world was thrust into familiar territory—a locker room filled with ski goggles, drenched reporters, foolish interviews (like the one pictured above), and studious front office executives that look completely out of place.

In celebration of the 2021 champs, we decided to look back at past NBA title moments to see what Champagne was being sprayed, poured, and consumed by the winning team. As you'll see, some organizations really go for it. Others not so much. We're looking at you Mark Cuban. Here are 11 NBA Championship Celebrations Doused in Champagne. 🍾

Champagne celebrations trace their origins back to 1967 by motor racing legend Dan Gurney after he won the 24 Hours of Le Mans. After he took 1st place, he shook up his Jeroboam of Moet & Chandon and drenched everyone around him, including at the time, LIFE Magazine photographer Flip Schulke (who captured the historic moment), as well as Henry Ford II and Carroll Shelby.
