“I can assure you that’s definitely not going to happen,” Alabama HC Nate Oats acknowledged a mistake in Brandon Miller’s intro and promised to improve communication with the media

The Alabama basketball star’s freshman Brandon Miller recently found himself in the spotlight after it was revealed he brought the gun teammate Darius Miles used in a January murder in Tuscaloosa.

Despite this, Miller has evaded charges and remained with the team, with some attributing this to his likely lottery pick status in the 2023 NBA draft. During the pre-game introduction, Miller’s teammate could be seen jokingly patting him as if he was looking for guns, which has become a regular part of Miller’s introduction act.

However, this ritual has been criticized after Miller’s involvement in the shooting was revealed. To make matters worse, as of Sunday morning no one had advised Miller to change his Twitter picture, which shows him being frisked before a game.

Basketball coach from Alabama Nate Oats was criticized for his handling of the situation, including his initial insensitive comments that Miller was “in the wrong place at the wrong time” regarding the shooting. Oats has since apologized for his comments, but the incident with Miller’s pre-game introduction has drawn renewed attention to the situation.

Despite the controversy, Miller has not faced any charges or known punishment from the team. Alabama’s athletic department and basketball program have also been criticized for their lack of media literacy and common sense in handling the situation.

During Alabama’s first home game since the shooting was exposed, Miller was still involved in his usual pregame introduction act, which included his teammate jokingly tapping him. The situation has drawn widespread criticism, with many questioning Alabama’s public relations and media coaching.

However, Oats has taken a proactive approach to addressing the controversy, raising the incident himself during his press conference and taking a stand on the issue.

The shooting incident put a damper on an exciting time for Miller as his talent on the court is still highly regarded and he is expected to be a top pick in the upcoming NBA draft. However, the controversy surrounding his involvement in the shooting has raised questions about his character and judgment that could affect his future prospects.

It remains to be seen how the situation will play out, but for now, Miller remains a key player for the Alabama basketball team.

Overall, the situation with Brandon Miller has attracted widespread attention and criticism, emphasizing the importance of media coaching and public relations in dealing with controversial issues.

Alabama basketball coach Nate Oats has been criticized for his handling of the situation, but his proactive approach to addressing the issue during his press conference is a step in the right direction. However, there are still many questions about Miller’s involvement in the filming and his future prospects as an NBA player.
