Expanded Individual Numbers

...are now available at Ken's site.

Over at Basketball Prospectus, he's also written a good primer on how to interpret those numbers:

I know it’s cool to have one magical rating that defines a player, but there are two stats that define a player’s offensive value, and you really can’t consider one without the other. That’s why when I create leaderboards for offensive rating, I stratify the players by usage. Players that maintain a high offensive rating while using a lot of possessions are more valuable than the efficient players that use few possessions.

And don't forget about the helpful links I've got over in the sidebar.
