Brandon Miller is looking forward to the opportunity to turn things around once he gets drafted into the NBA. He was a tremendous two-way player during his stint with the Alabama Crimson Tide. The 6″9 foot forward averaged 18.8 points and 8.2 rebounds per game in 37 appearances playing for Alabama. He also shot extremely well for a big man, averaging 43% FG, 38.4% from beyond the arc, and 85.9% FT.

Brandon is currently projected as a top 3 pick in the 2023 NBA Draft. His draft class also features players like Victor Wembanyama, who has drawn serious comparisons to big names in the NBA. And Scoot Henderson, who dominated high school basketball before becoming the youngest ever NBA G League Ignite entry. No matter how good Miller is right now, there is a controversial past that lingers around his storyline.
Brandon Miller allegedly provided the gun that Darius Miles used during Samea Harris’ murder
Brandon Miller used to play with a person named Darius Miles during his time in Alabama. Miles is famously known for being involved in the shooting of a female named Samea Harris. The latter was shot in the head when Miles and his accomplices were involved in an armed confrontation. According to sources, Miller got involved unusually. Let’s take a look at the situation.
Miles, along with his teammates Michael Davis and Jaden Bradley, approached Samea’s car while they parked at an intersection. While the three athletes were interacting with Harris, her boyfriend Cedrick Johnson and one of her friends were present. Miles claimed he saw Cedrick reach out for a gun. Reports say that it was nearly two hours past midnight when Brandon Miller was asked to bring a gun to where the three individuals were.
Miller brought the gun and picked up Darius Miles with the other two athletes. It was said that the car later approached the Black Jeep Harris was in and Miles opened fire at the driver’s seat, where Johnson was. Harris was shot on the left side of her face, which ultimately killed her. Miles was shot by Johnson in his shoulder. Miller’s windshield was shot at twice as well.
While Miles and Davis were charged with capital murder, Miller was left off the hook. The District Attorney claimed that there was nothing they could charge him with. His attorney would later state that Miller was unaware of the argument that was going on. He did as he was told but he never touched the gun nor did he block Harris’ vehicle. It was stated that Miller fled the scene out of fear he would get injured.
