Joakim Noah, the NBA's reigning Defensive Player of the Year, was the leading vote-getter in All-Defensive teams announced Monday by the NBA.
In balloting by 123 writers and broadcasters, Noah drew a league-high 105 first-team votes to headline a team that also featured the Clippers' Chris Paul, the Pacers' Paul George, the Thunder's Serge Ibaka and the Warriors' Andre Iguodala, who played for Lanphier High School in Springfield, Ill.
It's Noah's second straight first-team selection.
Jimmy Butler drew 29 first-team votes and landed on the second team for the first time in his career. He joined the Heat's LeBron James, the Rockets' Patrick Beverley, the Spurs' Kawhi Leonard and the Pacers' Roy Hibbert.
This is the first time Bulls' teammates have landed on first- or second-team All-Defense since Kirk Hinrich and Ben Wallace each earned second-team distinction in 2006-07.
Hinrich and Taj Gibson each drew two first-place votes but were well off the pace for second-team honors this year. Gibson failed to earn a $250,000 incentive bonus in his contract for making second-team All-Defense.
Noah also drew 13 second-team votes for a total of 223 points. George posted the second-most first-team votes with 65, 40 behind Noah, and points with 161.
Butler also had 45 second-team votes for 103 points, the third-highest total on the second team behind James and Beverley, a Chicago native.
