Default Demar doesn't pass enough?

Neil Paine of Basketball-Reference.com has a method to ascertain the number of touches a player has during any given game. He used those figures and estimates of the number of passes to a teammate in an attacking position players make to come up with his own "black hole" ratings.
Paine's numbers indicate that (Nick) Young passes on 27.4 percent of his touches. The next most Black Hole guard playing at least 30 minutes a game? DeMar DeRozan at 36.1 percent. (Trojans!)

found it kinda interesting...of course it doesnt take into account the talent surround the players....its obviously easier for kobe to pass the ball because his teammates but still, maybe demar should look for his teammates more...
