Finishline is doing the sale right now, so most prices are dropping like crazy.
Lightning Creators are also cheap now, 70 bucks. So yeah, you probably should be regretting it now, because Lightning Creator is more suited for guard position. Though I heard good reviews of Commander even coming from backcourt players.

Then again, back when you posted this, I guess Lightning Creators price was still biting (around 100-110 I presume)

Man, you're lucky to get those. They look damn tight and well-cushioned, unlike a lot of basketball shoes today (not to diss, but my friend showed me his Hyperdunks and Kobes, and he agrees with me that he finds them a bit thin and not really good for support). I'm looking for a cheaper pair myself, but I can't find one with a red (main)/black (strap, ankles, sole)/white (stripes) color scheme like the original Commanders had, but I don't think they make it like that.

I was actually reading a few months ago in Hoops magazine that the Bounce Commander is lighter than the Lightning Creator. Thats weird cause the Commander is for the bigs and the Creator is for guards.

Really? Wow, that's kinda funny. Maybe they made the Commanders lighter because for of that specific reason though. Bigs need that light comfort and whatever. However, if you just look at it, it seems a helluva lot heavier than the creators.

I just bought the TS Lightning Creators. These shoes are terrible if you have flat feet. The heel is actually positioned in a way that makes you overpronate.

They have almost NO ANKLE SUPPORT at all.

They do feel very light and responsive though.

True story, I tried on the Bounce Commanders and loved the support...that's the reason I bought the stupid Creators online.

I just thought the Commanders were too bulky for the Guard position. If I was playing the 4 or 5 ... these would be my shoe of choice.
