The personal achievements continue for Joakim Noah.

Already hailing as the reigning Defensive Player of the Year and the top vote-getter for the All-Defensive Team, Noah earned first-team All-NBA status, the league announced on Wednesday.

Noah joins, Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Chris Paul and James Harden.

Noah received 101 first-team votes out of 125 and becomes the fourth Bulls player and first center to earn All-NBA honors, joining Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Derrick Rose.

The seventh-year center averaged 12.6 points, 11.3 rebounds, a career-high 5.4 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.2 steals for the Bulls.

With the first-team honors, Noah earned a $500,000 bonus, but the Bulls avoided the luxury tax line.
