    Is Joakim Noah an MVP candidate?

    Pretty impressive what he's done to get the Bulls where they're at.

    Of course the team's effort is a big reason why, but if we're going by that then LeBron shouldn't be in the talks either.

    Is Deng's production too good to make a consideration for just Noah or any Bulls player?

    What are his stats?

    Even without knowing them, 'candidate' is all he'll ever have a shot at being. The top 4 are all but set in stone even if he belongs in there.

    Lebron, KD, Melo, Paul,

    not a chance. He's been doing a great job, but he's not putting up nearly the numbers he needs to to be considered. He's a guy you'd love to have on any team, but the work he does doesn't always show up in the stats, and therefore, will always be underrated.

    He's having a great year, and clearly means the world to that team, but his numbers aren't even close to being where they need to be...

    No, and also while looking at his numbers take into account that Thibs is playing him 40mpg... most centers are at about 30-32mpg.

    Tyson in 8mpg less is putting up nearly identical PPG & RPG, much higher FG%, and a much higher PER.

    He's having his best year for assists and his USG% is a career high Has a lot to do with those TO.

    The poor guy sometimes doesnt have no one open so he forces a pass. Rose should help him out once he comes back

    6 seeds in the weaker conference an MVP candidate does not make.

    Noah is not disappointing though. Should be in line for some serious votes one of the ALL NBA teams this year.

    Wait wait wait. All of last year when Joakim Noah was playing as good or maybe even better no one was saying anything but when D Rose is out he gets noticed and is mentioned as an MVP and DPOY candidate. Classic example of a player being in the shadow of others.

    No Noah isn't an MVP candidate and he's on the 2nd tier of DPOY candidates as well. He's been playing really well for the better part of the last 3 years and its good that he's getting noticed but its a shame that it took Rose being out for his notice to come.

    I argued all through these threads that Noah was a top 10 C last season and he wasn't even voted one. This season however I see no difference outside of his play making which has been phenomenal (something everyone knew for years watching Noah) and the fact that there is no Asik behind him (thus allowing him to play 9 more minutes per) he's basically the same player with the same impact just playing more minutes and contributing at that.

    Is Joakim Noah underrated by the PSD masses? Yes. Is he suddenly this season a MVP or DPOY contender? No not IMO. He was better last season he should have gotten his recognition since then.

    His per 36 numbers aren't anything special at all. 12/10/4/2 on under 50% FG%. Fat chance. The 4 assists are nice but that's about it.
