Brandon Miller Alabama's  potential NBA draft lottery

Brandon Miller is one of the best players in college basketball, starring for the Alabama Crimson Tide. Spending most of his time as a forward, he has had an impressive freshman year, averaging 19.6 PPG and 8 RPG in 30 games so far this season.

His 41.7% from 3-pt range and 84.7% from the free throw line, however, are his most impressive accomplishments. Miller will most likely be a top 5 lottery pick due to his incredible individual talent, showcased on a nightly basis with Alabama.

The Brandon Miller Basketball Journey to Alabama

The Brandon Miller 247, ESPN, and Rivals rankings put him as the 14th, 9th, and 17th rated prospect in the 2022 class, resulting in him being named a consensus 5-star recruit. Although he had attractive offers from Kansas, Tennessee State, the Australia NBL, and NBA G League, he ultimately chose to play for Alabama.

Miller credited the relationship he established with Alabama head coach Nate Oats as the biggest factor behind his decision. However, he noted that Alabama had always been his top option if he did decide to attend college instead of a professional developmental league.

Alabama Basketball, Controversy and Fatal shooting

The 2022-2023 Division 1 college basketball season has had many interesting storylines featuring a large spectrum of players. However, few can match the notoriety of the Brandon Miller story involving the fatal shooting of Jamea Jonae Harris by teammate Darius Miles at The Strip, a business district of bars and restaurants near Alabama’s campus. The incident has resulted in pressure mounted from several people and groups on the Alabama athletic department to suspend Miller for the rest of the season, including Harris’ family.

Fatal Shooting

On January 15, Miller dropped off teammate Darius Miles at a club but returned later to bring back Miles’ gun, which Miles had left in Miller’s car. When Miller showed up, Miles told Michael Davis, Miles’ friend who was at the scene to retrieve the gun. According to the official police report, Davis proceeded to fire the gun into a car where Jamea Jonae Harris was a passenger, while Harris’ boyfriend returned fire.

Tragically, Jamea Jonae Harris was killed during the exchange. Miller himself had no knowledge of the intentions of Miles or Davis, and at no point handled the gun itself, according to his attorney. As a result, he was not charged with a crime.

2022-2023 NCAA Stats

Miller is listed as 6 feet, 9 inches tall, making him essentially a power forward at the collegiate level. He will most likely play both the small forward and power forward positions in the NBA, as his good rebounding and shooting abilities make him an effective player at both positions.

Brandon Miller Age

Miller’s introduction to the NBA should be easier than many of his top freshman prospect peers, as he is one of the oldest freshmen in Division 1 men’s college basketball. He is currently 20 years old and will turn 21 on November 22.

Brandon Miller NBA Draft Projection

Brandon Miller is currently projected be a top 5 pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, possibly being picked as high as 3rd. He is a tremendous offensive player, possessing great shooting ability from the outside and the free-throw line. He is also a good offensive rebounder and projects to be at least a solid defender who can guard multiple positions.

Miller is an ideal player for the modern NBA and should have a long, successful career. While the Brandon Miller wiki page is certainly far different than it was at the beginning of the season due to the controversy surrounding the fatal shooting incident, he should have no problems landing a top spot in the draft.

Brandon Miller Highlights

Brandon Miller Scouting Report

A freshman attending college is often between 17 and 18 years old. Miller is 20 years old right now. He therefore has a more refined and polished game than the typical first-year player.

Regardless of age his upside is enormous. For this Kyle Kuzma-like forward, the future is bright. He has a fluid and adaptable game.

Miller is physically fit and slender. He is listed at the ideal height for an NBA four. Yet he has the perfect frame for an NBA wing.

Miller can score points. His jump shot is accurate and has NBA-caliber range, making it dangerous. While elevating for his shot, there is little lift, but the release is quick and the stroke is fluid. Also, if given the daylight, he’s looking to shoot.

His scoring is not limited to just jump shots. Equipped with a handle that’s above average for his size Miller has the ability to create and beat defenders off the dribble. He also gets to the charity stripe and puts in work on the offensive glass.

Miller’s feel for the game is solid. He has the potential to play some point forward as a result. His vision is decent but his passes are not always on point. Yet he’s still able to find and create for others in pick & roll action and in transition. 

Defensively Miller is neither a game changer nor a liability. Just a middle of the pack defender with some solid defense potential. He has the ability to get into passing lanes for steals and turn defense into offense. He holds his own.

His overall offensive inefficiency, which he is working hard to improve, and his tendency to turn the ball over are currently two of the biggest criticisms of his game.
