Joakim Noah is having the best season in his seven-year NBA career.
He’s averaging 11.7 points and a career-high 11.4 rebounds, one of 10 NBA players averaging a double-double. Plus, he’s averaging 14.4 points and 15 rebounds in 11 games in January.
If not for Kevin Durant, he’d be making a case for player of the month. He’s in the …
