I suppose that's a fair read.
Call it a 'velocity' issue then. When I think of arm strength, I'm not talking about a guy's ability to throw it 70 yards, I'm thinking more about his working arm strength - his ability to put the ball into tight spaces that are closing rapidly.
I also look at the ability to generate that velocity with a quick release as part of one's arm strength (this is where Cassel fails so badly; his arm is actually adequate, he just needs 20 acres and no defenders in order to actually generate the power in it, as opposed to someone like Jones that can do it with a wrist flip).
If you want to call it a height problem instead of an arm strength problem, that's fine. In either event, there's an actual physical hurdle keeping him from getting balls into tight spaces that a guy like Jones or Barkley would have an easier job overcoming.
Wilson could do it if he developed uncanny accuracy and timing, but I don't think he will.
