09:25 AM ET 07.14 | The Dwight Howard saga has begun to irritate some of Howard's biggest supporters. On Thursday, Charles Barkley went on Philadelphia radio station 97.5 and said, "I love Dwight Howard as a person and as a player, but he's getting on my last damn nerve." Howard's indecision has become as unpalatable as LeBron James' decision. "The last 24 hours it's been all Dwight Howard, nonstop," Barkley said. "It's not fun; nobody wants to hear it. It's not good for the game, not good for the fans. I'm really sick of it." The disgruntled Orlando Magic center has been dominating headlines for months as he mulls over which teams he'd be willing to play for. Two weeks ago, Barkley told ESPNDallas that Howard "needs to grow up and make a decision."

Howard has actually made a decision. He said he only wants to play for Brooklyn. The problems are not all on Howard, the Magic has some issues too, they want draft picks and to unload all bad contracts. That's is not easy to do

Who gives a rat's **** what Barkley thinks?Howard has every right to play this to the max to get as much money as possible.

And Houston has every right to get the most they can get for him. (Not that you were implying otherwise.)

Everyone's getting on the Chuckster's nerves lately. He'd better get a Xanax script from his shrink and soon!

Join the Club Chuck.....One Summer everyone is annoyed because Lebron made such a deliberate choice to move to Miami and two summers later everyone is annoyed because Howard cant make up his mind.....That is America for you my friends.

I have to admit that LBJ is looking like a regular Joe more and more each day that Dwight acts like Prima Donna!
