Found November 24, 2011 on The Juicy Online:
Dwight Howard was in Los Angeles Wednesday night, as he stopped by the The Tonight Show on NBC. During his appearance, Howard "TRIED" to stay out of the NBA lockout talk, but did provide the audience with laughs as he acted like former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal.

Howard also thanked members of the military, who were sitting in the audience.

When Tonight Show host Jay Leno asked Howard about if there would be a NBA season this year, Howard responded:
I hope so, man. I miss basketball.
Later on in the interview, Howard began imitating both Shaquille O'Neal and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
