08:06 AM ET 11.25 | If Dwight Howard wanted to make an impression in Los Angeles, mission accomplished Wednesday night. [Howard] continued to build his brand on Wednesday, unleashing his effervescent, playful personality during a guest appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" in Los Angeles. ... [Howard] said he's trying to stay out of NBA lockout matters and bantered a bit with his fellow guest, actress and comedian Whitney Cummings. The Orlando Magic center also performed imitations of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal. When asked by Leno if there will be a 2011-12 NBA season, Howard responded, "I hope so, man." Then, Howard shed some mock tears; scrunching his face, Howard added, "I miss basketball."

Does any one else get the feeling he's looking to do more in Hollywood than just play basketball?

Wise man..."Well, actually, I think that it's best to have the lawyers -- and all those guys -- deal with that," Howard said. "We do our job. We're basketball players. We need to stick to playing basketball instead of trying to handle the legal matters."

A wise comment, I may have watched it if it wasn't sorry **** jay Leno.

QUOTE(#8):

Eh ? Leno is awesome ! When Letterman went to CBS to take on Leno head-to-head, everyone thought Letterman would whip Leno. Guess what ? It turned out to be an even split between viewers. Fact - Leno has the best one-man comedy routine out of any late-night TV host. He is the only one with extensive experience as a professional comedian. His monologue to start the show is the best out of anyone's - including Letterman. The only fault is that Leno has a tendency to "kiss up" to the guests from time to time. Letterman may be slightly better with regard to interviewing guests, but not by much. In any case, Leno is extremely successful and generally well-liked - hard to call a guy like that "sorry ****".

Leno just isn't funny.
