    Planking: NBA Lockout Edition

    • 1. Dwight Howard: Barber Plank

      Dwight doesn't let a little thing like hair get in the way of a good plank.

    • 2. Dwight Howard: Arena Plank

      Magic fans are happy Dwight's still planking in front of The Amway Center. Better than Staples.

    • 4. Dwight Howard: Cycle Plank

      I don't know if you've noticed but some of Dwight's planks seem like bragging.

    • 5. Dwight Howard: Mower/Look At My Big House Plank

      See what I mean?

    • 6. Dwight Howard: Fancy Grill Plank

      And again...

    • 7. Dwight Howard: Plane Plank

    • 10. Gilbert Arenas: EasyPass Plank

      Gilbert Arenas: EasyPass Plank

      Gil, unlike Dwight who is in it to show off his stuff, is in the planking game for the thrill of the hunt. Danger be damned!

    • 11. Gilbert Arenas: Piano Plank

      Gilbert Arenas: Piano Plank

      Gil was upset when the pianist stopped playing Gershwin. So he planked out of protest till the guy gave up. Agent Zero loves Tin Pan Alley.

    • 12. Gilbert Arenas: Bathroom Plank

      Gilbert Arenas: Bathroom Plank

      Gil might be breaking some laws with this one.

    • 13. Gilbert Arenas: Dwight's Porsche Plank

      Gilbert Arenas: Dwight's Porsche Plank

      Sometimes a plank is a sign of disrespect. Sort of like "Rick James" going all Fuck Yo Couch on Chappelle's Show. But when you say it with a plank, it's elegant.

    • 14. Gilbert Arenas: Treadmill Plank

      Gilbert Arenas: Treadmill Plank

      Gil's Tweet accompanying this masterful plank: "The trainer said 2mils on the treadmill today..I just planked for 15mins."

      This is what Blake Griffin does. He takes things to the next level. Dunking? Check. Looking like Lurch? Check. Planking? What do you think?
