“You know, even though I could make it as big as possible, I just choose to not empower it…not to give it life,” Miller says in the video, which was posted Saturday, referencing messages he’s received.


The video ends with the message that it is okay to reach for help, and that “we all need to stand up for each other.”

The Players’ Tribune was founded by Jeter with the aim to “provide unique insight into the daily sports conversation.”
