    Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah was named the NBA defensive player of the year on Monday in front of friends and family.

That’s a shame, but Noah is the right choice. Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah, the centerpiece of a defense which held opponents to a league-low 91.8 ppg, is the recipient of the 2013-14 Kia NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award, the NBA announced today. While not usually a part of the DPOY criteria, Noah is also helping the Bulls score 103.4 points when he’s on the court and just 95.7 when he’s off. As part of its support of the Defensive Player of the Year Award, Kia Motors America will donate an all-new 2015 Kia Sorento LX CUV to a charity of Noah's choice.
