There's no question Joakim Noah has the intangibles to earn a spot on the All-NBA First Team at center. He's willed the Bulls to win after losing Derrick Rose to injury and Luol Deng to a trade with the Cavaliers.

But is that enough to beat out other centers who may have better statistics?

Guys like Dwight Howard (18.4 ppg, 12.3 rpg) and DeMarcus Cousins (22.7 ppg, 11.7 rpg) have better numbers than Noah (12.6 ppg, 11.2 rpg) this season and could be his biggest competition to earning the honor. The Bulls' All-Star center would also reportedly earn a $500,000 bonus if he was given the award.

The SportsTalk Live panel debated whether Noah deserved to be selected to the All-NBA First Team, and the answer might not make Bulls fans too happy.
