The elder Wiggins was drafted 23rd overall in 1983, and found himself playing for the Houston Rockets in 1984. After helping the Rockets in the NBA Finals in 1986, he and teammate Lewis Lloyd were suspended for more than two years after testing positive for cocaine. He came back in 1989, but was playing in the CBA by 1992. "Everybody knows my history, and maybe the way it finished," Mitchell Wiggins said. "Just to have Andrew and I think also my other son Nick, will get in the NBA, just gives me closure. I'm able to take maybe some of the things I was feeling when I left the league. I can sleep better, now. "When you play with Hakeem [Olajuwon] and Ralph Sampson you've got to make sacrifices because they're big men who demand the ball. I was a good player, and a good fit there. I just feel like I let them down when I had my issues. I should have played 8-10 years with them." Cleveland Plain Dealer
