Why do they call the five second back-to-basket rule the "Charles Barkley Rule"?
 
I never watched barkley play so I never really understood it

He would get the ball on a side pretty far from the basket and the other four teammates would be on the other side of the court. Rules back then meant you couldn't leave your man or it was illegal defense, so he'd just pound the ball, backing the guy down slowly, for like 15-20 seconds, then make a close hook shot or whatever.

Really boring to watch.

When he was old on the Rockets and all he had left was his rebounding and one on one ability in the post he might get it at the 3 point line and just bully his way into the paint backing down for 10-12 seconds and score. It worked. But it was ugly.

Mark Jackson was probably worse. He might post up for 15 seconds...starting at halfcourt. But he didnt even really have a reason. HE wasnt always even trying to score. Just protect the ball.

Dude had a body built to play in the post. He could post up anyone. If he had a bigger body against him, he would use his superior face up game and make a bucket. If he had a smaller body against him, he would mash that big ass butt and pound away for as long as it takes to get to the bucket.

I've heard it referred to as the Mark Jackson rule as well (more prominently FWIW). He backed down opposing points for large chunks of the shot clock in his day.

That's because Mark Jackson backed opponents up from half-court :roll:

Is a dumb rule. It's like saying you can't dribble the ball for a certain amount of time. You should (especially since they changed illegal D) be able to post up as much as you want.

they should remove that rule, now that you can double team

Barkley got it from Dantley.

No, illegal D was (when it was called) when you double-teamed a player without the ball from the weak side.

This is what I recall too. You could double on the ball, but not a player off the ball.

I've been watching NBA basketball my entire life and I've never once heard the 5 sec back-to-the-basket rule be referred to as the "Charles Barkley rule." I have heard the "Mark Jackson rule," though.

Right, that's what I'm saying. Nobody is going to run across the entire court to double. That's too much time with four men with only three defenders. Easy cut for a basket.
