This is not the thing to do after a young lady lost her life.
Alabama star freshman Brandon Miller brought the gun that teammate Darius Miles allegedly used in a January killing in Tuscaloosa. Somehow, he escaped being charged with a crime and was able to stay on the team.
The shooting led to capital murder charges against Miles, who was dismissed from the team. Another man, Michael Davis, was also charged with capital murder in the shooting which left Jamea Jonae Harris dead.
Fresh off scoring 41 points, Miller received a huge ovation from his home fans, but most are talking about what his teammate did.
As he got introduced in the starting lineup, his teammate could be seen patting him down, which is commonly used to find weapons.
Miller’s role in the shooting has not resulted in charges or known punishment from within the team. Miller is regarded as a likely lottery pick in the 2023 NBA Draft. His talent is likely the only reason he remains on the team.
In a statement earlier this week, Miller’s attorney, Jim Standridge claimed that Miller “never touched the gun, was not involved in its exchange to Mr. Davis in any way, and never knew that illegal activity involving the gun would occur.”
Alabama coach Nate Oats told reporters that his star forward “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,” Oats said.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
