So Demar drops down the list, not due to his defense, but because of his offensive output. Can that be explained, or do we just figure that he isn't a solid contributor?

In a certain sense it works in that he is below a lot of Toronto guys ahead of him in terms of team play, particularly if you don't separate out a pretty big change over the last half of the season as to how he has played. But does he not also drop down overall relative to other stars due to being on a team that stresses team play to such a degree? In the end there is maybe stuff to interpret here, which i have no problem with - it's how the rankings will be used by people that have no interest in interpreting anything, but rather see this as a final "objective" interpretation of cold hard numbers.
