"Every day I step on the court, the first thing I say to myself is 'How can I dominate tonight?'" professes Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard during the first installment of a new lineup of adidas commercials. If you want to dominate like the Freak, the first step is to pick up a pair of adidas Commander basketball kicks.

The Team Signature Commander series is inspired by an elite tier of NBA bigs who embody the leadership role for their teams—Howard, Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett and San Antonio Spurs center Tim Duncan. You may recall seeing KG sporting a pair of Commanders during his team's dramatic run to the '08 NBA Championship.

Not only are these dunks stylish, they offer much-needed support for the low-post player. adidas' new Select System allows the player to choose between two insoles. Three adiWear stripes are positioned near the mid-foot to provide lateral support. An EVA-Lycra tongue and molded ankle collar provide additional support without sacrificing comfort.

Whether you're blocking shots into the second row like KG, or kissing it off the glass like The Big Fundamental, adidas' Team Signature Commander basketball kicks are a must for any big man looking to take command of the hardwood.
