Nike Exec Confesses To Murdering 18-Yr-Old While He Was In A Gang!!

Nike executive Larry Miller has admitted to killing a teen when he was in a gang over 50 years ago. 

"Because for years, I ran from this," Miller, 72, told Sports Illustrated. "I tried to hide this and hope that people didn't find out about it." 

Miller said he shot 18-year-old Edward White on September 30, 1965 in retaliation for one of Miller's fellow gang members getting killed by a rival gang. He said he wasn't even sure he was affiliated with the opps.


"We were all drunk," Miller said. "I was in a haze. Once it kind of set in, I was like, 'Oh, sh-t, what have I done?' It took years for me to understand the real impact of what I had done."

Miller became vice president of Nike Basketball in 1997, president of the Jordan Brand in 1999 and president of the Trail Blazers in 2006. He later became the president of the Jordan Brand again in 2012. He says coming clean has feed him.
