Default Re: Why do they call the five second back-to-basket rule the "Charles Barkley Rule"?

I've been watching since the mid-80s, and I've heard it referred to as both. Chuck and Jax were notorious for eating up chunks of the clock.

Still, it's a stupid-ass rule. Always has been. If a team wants to use up most of its possession on one player using up most of the shot clock, that's on them.
