Former president of Michael Jordan’s Jordan Brand from 1999-2006 and president of the Portland Trail Blazers from 2007-2012, Larry Miller, is coming clean.
Miller spoke with Sports Illustrated, and revealed that when he was 16-years-old in Philadelphia, he killed a man.
“That’s what makes it even more difficult for me, because it was for no reason at all,” Miller told Sports Illustrated. “I mean, there was no valid reason for this to happen. And that’s the thing that I really struggle with and that’s—you know, it’s the thing that I think about every day. It’s like, I did this, and to someone who—it was no reason to do it. And that’s the part that really bothers me.”
As Miller describes it, his decision to pull the trigger was an act of retribution. Earlier that month, a younger friend—someone he considered “an innocent”—had been stabbed and killed during a fight with the 53rd and Pine gang.”
“For 40 years, I ran from this. I tried to hide this and hope that people didn’t find out about it.”

Miller was later arrested and imprisoned until he was 30-years-old.
“It was eating me up inside,” he says.

“If I could go back and undo it, I would absolutely do that. I can’t. So all I can do is try to do what I can to help other people and try to maybe prevent this from happening to someone else,” Miller said.
