Why Are Gilbert Arenas and Dwight Howard Planking?

I know we normally attempt to do some moderate research when we receive questions from readers by email, but we’re coming up empty here on an email we received from a reader last night. Jarryd from Orlando asked the question: “Are Arenas and Howard bored or something in the offseason? What’s with the planking”. So if there are any diehard Orlando Magic fans reading this, feel free to enlighten us in the comment section as to why Gilbert Arenas and Dwight Howard are posting pics on the web these days of themselves ‘planking’. Photos of the planking after the jump.

For those of you who don’t know what ‘planking’ is here is what Wikipedia has to say about it:

The lying down game (also known as planking,[1] or face downs) is an activity, popular in various parts of the world, consisting of lying face down in an unusual or incongruous location. The hands must touch the sides of the body, and having a photograph of the participant taken and posted on the Internet is an integral part of the game.[2] Players compete to find the most unusual and original location in which to play.[2] The location should also be as public as possible, and as many people as possible should be involved.[3]

For those of you out there who are familiar with the planking phenomenon, can you at least let us know in the comment section if Howard and Arenas are any good at it?
