    Durant wins in a landslide. Joakim Noah is fourth. Not sure a Gator has ever finished that high in the voting.

    1. Kevin Durant — 1232 (119 1st place)
    2. LeBron James — 891 (6 1st place)
    3. Blake Griffin — 434
    4. Joakim Noah — 322
    5. James Harden — 85
    6. Stephen Curry — 66
    7. Chris Paul — 45
    8. Al Jefferson — 34
    9. Paul George — 33
    10. LaMarcus Aldridge — 26
    11. Kevin Love — 25
    12. Tim Duncan — 21
    13. Tony Parker — 21
    14. Dirk Nowitzki — 7
    15. Carmelo Anthony — 4
    16. Goran Dragic — 3
    17. Mike Conley — 1

    He is an excellent player and I agree that no Gator has finished that high before.

    Blake Griffin getting that many more votes than Chris Paul is crazy to me

    In June of 2007, I was on Bulls sites trying to tell them what a great pick their franchise had made in taking Noah. Most of their fans wanted hated the pick and sportswriters for Chicago newspapers bashed it for days after the draft.

    Seven years later, the guy is a two time All-Star, three-time All-Defensive teamer, the 2014 DPOY and he finishes fourth in MVP voting behind Blake Griffin and the two best players in the world.

    I just hope that the way Noah turned around their season that a lot of free agents are interested in playing with him. They need some more help to seriously contend.

    I don't watch a lot of professional basketball so my opinion is probably a bit biased but I would given Noah the title of most underrated player in the NBA. He recorded four triple-doubles on the season if I'm not mistaken. Pretty good for a guy that wasn't expected to do much in the league.

    Hats off to Durant, though. Would love to see him overtake LeBron as best player in the league. Wishful thinking, perhaps.

    Too bad a Seminole has won it once.

    What a speech by KD. That guy gets it. The slim reaper! Texas should be proud.

    I did the same thing when he was drafted and everyone I talked to online was pretty excited about him.

    No way is he underrated any more; not when he finishes 4th for MVP and well ahead of most of the big names in the NBA.

    Joakim brings his lunch bucket and works like a man the entire game, each and every game. He just wears people out. Guys like that, with their motors stuck in 5th gear, are rare. Once fans and sportswriters realize how friggin' hard he plays, he quickly becomes their favorite. He IS a franchise guy you can and should build around.

    I spent time on some Bulls forums both pre-draft and post-draft. Most of them I conversed with felt like Noah was redundant with Ben Wallace (hadn't hit his hard decline yet) and Tyrus Thomas (wasn't a complete misfire yet) and that if they couldn't trade up to get Horford, they wanted Yi Jianlian or Spencer Hawes.

    Obviously not all of them felt that way and some seemed plenty excited to have Noah but his stock had slipped in many people's eyes toward the end of our run because he wasn't having the same success he had in 2006. It wasn't until later we found out he had played like the last two months of that season with a significant shoulder injury (rotator cuff if I remember correctly).

    I think Bulls fans pretty quickly realized what they had in Joakim. I remember my buddy saying "Thanks for Noah" within his first couple years on the team.
