Michael Finley made nearly $140 million during his 17-year NBA career, and some of that money is going to be spent this weekend on his alma mater. The former swingman played his college basketball at Wisconsin, and with the Badgers playing in the Final Four Saturday night, Finley is offering to buy drinks for Wisconsin students that make the trip to Dallas.  Finley spent more than half of his professional career playing for the Mavericks.  Congrats to the Badger hoop squad! Lets paint Arlington #Badger red.
