    Cuban has said all along that he'd personally foot the bill for the parade celebrating the Mavs' NBA Finals victory over the Miami Heat.

    According to the city's summary sheet, the largest expense, at $270,715, was for the 540-strong police presence. An additional 132 firefighters and paramedics on hand for emergencies cost $54,002. Clean-up was the smallest expense at $843.

    The rest was spent on public works, Convention Center usage and various city services.

    About 200,000 jubilant fans attended the downtown parade June 16th.
