Glenn Robinson had the ability and, at times, the willingness to bang on the baseline to create his shot. The next time Barnes initiates contact on a basketball court will be the first.
He's certainly not Paul Pierce, a guy who has always displayed tremendous competitiveness and toughness, traits that nobody is attributing to Barnes these days.
I can see the Vandeweghe comparison.
