Chicago Sun Times - From doghouse to All-Star, it was quite the week for the Bulls’ Joakim Noah. It was announced on Thursday night that Noah made his first All-Star Team after six seasons, with the coaches selecting the 6-foot-11, 232-pound former first-rounder out of Florida as a reserve for the Eastern Conference Team. Noah won’t be going alone, either, as Luol Deng was also selected for the second consecutive season, but Noah was a sentimental favorite as the announcement was building.
Awesome. 2nd straight year for Luol and a way long overdue first selection for Noah. Bulls wouldn’t be anywhere close to the top of the East without both of these guys stepping up their game without D-Rose. Well deserved.
