The pesky Bulls center has been honored again, receiving the most votes in the NBA's All-defensive team voting.

Noah received 105 of 123 possible votes, leading the way ahead of Paul George, who received 65 votes. Chris Paul, Andre Iguodala and Serge Ibaka were the other players voted to the first team.

Receiving second-team honors were LeBron James, Roy Hibbert, Andrew Drummond, Patrick Beverly, Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler.

It's no surprise that the Bulls and Pacers, two fiercely competitive defensive teams, were the only teams with two players named to the all-defense teams.

Congrats to all the players mentioned for their excellent defensive seasons.
