Noah wins Defensive Player of the Year
Strip away all the fame and fortune and what’s left? Family and friends.
Joakim Noah found himself surrounded by those Monday at a north suburban hotel, where he joined Michael Jordan from 1988 as the only Bulls in franchise history to receive the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year award. With 100 of 125 first-place votes, Noah easily outdistanced runner-up Roy Hibbert of the Pacers.
