In order to make these numbers a bit more meaningful, I've centered it around the top ten players who played significant minutes (1000+) using last year's stats. This makes the number more like a Quarterback's Passer Rating. So, 95+ is equal to top ten in the league.
--As stated, a scoring efficiency (SCOFF) of 95+ means that the player is scoring as efficiently as a top ten player in the league. This means that Kobe's number is off the charts. Howard's number shouldn't surprise; it's quite good. He leaves too many points at the FT line though to be in the elite category at this point (and it might be argued that he gets fewer attempts now on a more stacked offensive team than he has typically been a part of). Meeks, MWP, Hill, Gasol, and Jamison are all in good shape. Nash's number could be higher; but he's not a scorer. He hasn't looked for his shot very much this season, and that hurts his rating here (it helps elsewhere). Among the other numbers, none of them really stand out as cause for concern. The bottom three are all in limited numbers; the next few are PGs, who don't do a good deal of scoring in this offense.
--The top spot isn't much of a surprise. Even in an offense with Kobe Bryant consuming possessions at a high rate, Steve Nash is at an elite level as a passer. DJO's Passing Efficiency (PAFF) number comes in limited time and can be disregarded. Duhon, Blake, and Kobe follow. These numbers are skewed by PGs, who do an amazing job at passing efficiency, so if a SG has a rating of a 71 (Kobe), that doesn't mean he's doing a bad job. Probably the most concerning among the numbers are MWP's and (to a lesser degree) Jamison's (he's a shooter) numbers. Forwards must be able to do a better job of avoiding turnovers and distributing. Look at Pau Gasol; for a PF/C to be at that level is pretty ridiculous (ahead of several SFs, combo guards).
--If Passing Efficiency favors PGs, Hustle Efficiency (HUFF) favors bigs. For the most part, the stat does seem to capture hustle. Hill's energy is off the charts; Dwight Howard's ridiculous athleticism allows him to overcome some of the sloppy play (going for the block too frequently, turning it over) that would otherwise harm his efficiency. Jamison (surprisingly?) and MWP (not surprisingly?) are very active. Nash's low HUFF shouldn't be a concern. He doesn't block shots, doesn't grab many offensive boards, and he isn't asked to rack up many steals.
--I think of these numbers in tiers. If your Offensive Positional Efficiency (O-EFF) is 95+, you're a superstar. If it's above 80, you're starting caliber in terms of offense. If it's above 70, you're a quality backup. If it's above 60, you deserve minutes in the rotation. Anything below that becomes questionable. The only player with a very high O-EFF who doesn't start is Hill. His level of activity on the boards and the efficient shots he takes makes him an exceptionally good backup big. The only starter whose O-EFF is rather low is MWP (let's set aside Morris). But MWP isn't far off the 70 mark, and he is known mostly for his defense. O-EFF is a measure of offensive efficiency.

Hill 17.0 / 0.96
Nash 20.8 / 1.41
Ebanks 17.4 / 0.86
Blake 13.6 / 1.32
Sacre 9.2 / 0.64
Clark 11.8 / 0.50
DJO 32.0 / 0.40
--This is a straightforward measure of a player's points created divided by possessions consumed. I add the number of possessions consumed per 36 minutes so it becomes clear what the advantages of Steve Nash (1.41 SYNERGY) are over Chris Duhon (1.51 SYNERGY). Duhon creates 1 more point than Nash per 10 possessions consumed, but Steve Nash is able to make plays on far more possessions than Duhon. So over the course of 36 minutes, Duhon would create about 20 points to Nash's 42. Is it surprising to see the bigs so low on SYNERGY? An answer to that question is unclear.
Its like Dr. Buss is guarding the Celtic rim this second half. Nothings dropping
