Pictures of NBA players "planking," a new viral game that involves lying down. Posted by Ben Golliver.

The NBA players might not be taking their Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations with owners lying down, but they are spending their summer flat on their faces. That's because a popular international game known as "planking" has gone viral throughout the NBA Twitterosphere.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to explain planking. The game boils down to taking a photograph of yourself lying down face first, like a plank, on an unusual object or in an unusual place. The fun comes in the innovation and one-upsmanship.

Who can pick the most unique place? Who can pose for the funniest picture?

It's no surprise that two of the NBA's biggest pranksters -- Orlando Magic guard Gilbert Arenas and center Dwight Howard -- are also two of the most prolific plankers. Here are a few photos the duo has posted to their respective Twitter accounts in the past few days.

This is what happens when you get knocked out in the first round of the playoffs by Atlanta. What a bunch of stiffs.

They really lied down in that series.

Hey! This is good news for the Magic fans. At least the two are bonding with boredom maybe it will help them with the team chemistry for the next season. (If there is any)
