USA Basketball's intrasquad scrimmage Thursday night in Las Vegas featured some of the best young talent in the NBA, but the highlight of the event came with all of those players on the bench.
During a timeout, U.S. Airman Nathaniel Mills -- wearing full fatigues and combat boots -- came onto the court and pulled out a windmill dunk that would have earned him some high scores on All-Star weekend.
Check out the dunk and Carmelo Anthony's reaction in the video below.
"That was the best play of the night," coach Mike Krzyzewski told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Said Mills, who is stationed at Nellis Air Force Base and was honored during the game: "You should see me without fatigues and boots."

This is a pretty great video that comes from last night’s USA Showcase game. It shows a U.S. Air Force soldier wearing his fatigues and boots throwing down a windmill jam in between action during the game. That certainly takes some supreme athletic ability.
Here’s another angle that shows the soldier getting some encouragement, then some daps from Carmelo Anthony.
The Team USA Basketball Showcase from Thursday night was an awesome display of young talent, athleticism, and plenty of dunks to go around.
The best dunk of the night came from a member of Team USA, he’s just not on the basketball roster. Nathaniel Mills is a U.S. Air Force member, and an amazing athlete.
