Reporter asks question that makes Dwight Howard feign sleep rather than answering

Even after Howard “wakes up,” he holds his hand over his face, clearly dreading the pending discussion he surely knew was coming. For Howard, it’s a tired subject. (Though, for the rest of us, there’s still intrigue, which is why the inquiries won’t end anytime soon.)

But as funny as Howard was, I still think Troy Barnes does it better:
