NBA Lockout 2011: Wyc Grousbeck Willing To Lose Entire Season?

In one day, the NBA went from one united front to owners and players pitting themselves against each other. The Boston Celtics aren't immune for any drama, either, and Boston Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck hasn't been able to help his cause.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports wrote that Grousbeck may be willing to lose the entire 2011-12 season if he and the owners cannot get a deal done on their terms.

"He's one of the owners believed to be willing to lose the next season, along with Phoenix's Robert Sarver," wrote Adrian Wojnarowski. (via WEEI)

David Stern and the league officially locked out the players starting at 12:01 a.m. on Friday morning after they could not reach an agreement with Billy Hunter and the NBA Players Association on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

If there is no 2011-12 season, Grousbeck and the Celtics would save $31.2 million owed to both Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen this season.
