Former WNBA player Candice Wiggins says she was mistreated by gay players during her entire career because she's heterosexual.  The 30-year-old Wiggins claims that over her eight-year career, she experienced a toxic and harmful time in the WNBA.  

Wiggins told the San Diego Union-Tribune that 98% of WNBA players are gay.  Wiggins says she's received positive reaction from those she's close to as well as thanks from other WNBA players who've experienced similar abuse.  Other WNBA players have disputed her claims.
