Brandon Miller has found himself wrapped up in an ugly crime. NBA fans might be aware that Miller, who is from the University of Alabama was considered a top prospect for the upcoming 2023 NBA draft. However, his association with Darius Miles will certainly haunt him through the media.
That is because Darius Miles is linked to the murder of a woman named Jamea Jonae Harris. The act of taking life is no simple matter and Brandon’s reputation will undoubtedly take a hit due to his involvement. With that being said, NBA fans must certainly want to know more about the context of this crime and how Miller fits into all of this.
Future NBA prospect Brandon Miller and Darius Miles used to be teammates
This is truly a tragic turn of events, born from impulsive behavior and action. Darius Miles played alongside Brandon Miller for the Alabama Crimson Tide, the university basketball team. Therefore, they were certainly close and knew a significant amount about the other’s possessions.
That is the only explanation that we can come up with to explain why Brandon Miller brought Darius a gun. According to the reports, the gun was Miles’ and he texted Miller to bring it to him. Brandon, who claims to have not known what was going on complied and brought the gun to Darius.

Miles and another friend of his called Michael Davius then apparently hit on a group of women and wouldn’t back off. One of them had a boyfriend who was also carrying a firearm. Things got escalated and a shootout commenced, unfortunately killing Jamea, who was simply a bystander.
Darius Miles and Michael Davis were soon arrested and convicted. However, this link to Brandon Miller, although weak, is simply not good attention for the potential NBA prospect. His coach defended him and claimed that he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
“College kids are out. Brandon hasn’t been in any type of trouble nor is he in any type of trouble in this case. Wrong spot at the wrong time.”
We should certainly wonder whether that is a satisfactory explanation. After all, Jamea was the one in the wrong place at the wrong time. Brandon was away at a safe distance, after having given Darius the tool required to commit this crime.
Since Brandon appears to be a good person and claims to have not known why Darius was going to use the gun, he should be let off the hook for this. Hopefully, this won’t stunt his potential NBA career and hurt his reputation at a larger level.
