TELANDER: Bulls need Joakim Noah to dominate vs. Wizards

Joakim Noah was made for Chicago. This is a town that appreciates effort — and that’s what the Bulls center will give you. Early on in his seven-year career with the Bulls, Noah sometimes expended that effort doing nothing much of value. He started out his first two years averaging 1.2 assists and 6.7 points. His rebounds — 5.6 per game, then 7.6 — weren’t much for a 6-11 guy with long arms. And then — whiz bang! — maturity. Focus. Intensity....

Taj Gibson for NBA Sixth Man Award? He thinks Ginobili, Crawford

Backup big man Taj Gibson smiled at the possibility he would bring the Bulls their second individual honor this month. And then he explained why he probably won’t win the Sixth Man of the Year award when it’s announced in the next 10 days or so. Center Joakim Noah was named defensive player of the year Monday. “It would be great,” Gibson said Tuesday before Game 2 against the Wizards. “I don’t even think I’m going to win it, to tell you the truth.”...

OT: Noah's father beams with pride

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. -- Yannick Noah did what a lot of dads do while trying to make their basketball-loving sons happy during their formative years -- he bought plenty of basketball cards and memorabilia. Yannick recalled this memory Monday night after watching his son, Joakim Noah, receive the 2013-2014 NBA Defensive Player of the Year award. "I used to go out and try to get some cards signed -- it cost me a fortune -- of these guys," Yannick said.

Joakim Noah calls NBA defensive player honor a ‘team award’

Bulls center Joakim Noah walks to the beat of his own drum, so, of course, he accepted the 2013-14 NBA Defensive Player of the Year award in his own unique style Monday. Noah took time to make fun of the statue and its “weird-looking defensive stance,’’ asked if he actually gets to keep the car that comes with the award and dedicated the honor to his mentor, Tyrone Green, who died last week. He was his usual humble self, calling it a team award, first and...

Joakim Noah wins NBA Defensive Player of the Year, Roy Hibbert finishes second, Paul George seventh

Now surprise to hear that Chicago center Joakim Noah overwhelmingly won the regular season award for defensive excellence. The NBA announced on Monday that Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah earned the 2013-14 KIA Defensive Player of the Year Award, voted on by a panel of 125 sportswriters and broadcasters across the league. Noah is the first Bulls player to win the DPOY since Michael Jordan. As painful as it is to see Noah receive any award, he more than earned it by being one of only three players to average  at least double-digit rebounds (11.3 rpg), 1.5 blocks (1.51. bpg) and 1.2 steals...

Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah to be awarded NBA's Defensive Player of the year (+ a historical look at the award)

the man who plays with emotion, heart, and gets called for technical fouls has been awarded for his efforts. The NBA will be awarding Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah the 2014 Defensive player of the year award. So, clearly, this is a product of both reputation and production. You need both to win an end of season award, and Noah has played his butt off. It took a while for the voters to get with the program, but this kid has a very demonstrative season. But how good was it compared to other DPOY winners? Let's take a look back at the last two decades of the award and try to see where he...

NBA set to give Noah defensive award

The Bulls have scheduled a news conference for 4 p.m. on Monday. All signs point to Joakim Noah getting the NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award. Once the Pacers and center Roy Hibbert went into a late-season tailspin, it was clear Noah would win this award with ease and it obviously didn't take long for the league office to count the ballots. Noah will be handed the trophy before Tuesday's Game 2 vs. Washington at the United Center. Noah will be the second Bulls player to win the award, following Michael Jordan in 1987-88.
