The NBA announced today that LeBron James will take home his fourth MVP trophy this year. It’s his second consecutive award, and fourth in the last five years, with Derrick Rose winning in 2011. Rose’s teammate Joakim Noah got a fifth-place vote from Marc Berman of the New York Post.

Noah finished fourth in the voting for Defensive Player of the Year and has been a key part of the Chicago Bulls success this season, especially in last night’s game seven. The Bulls will play LeBron and the Miami Heat tomorrow night in South Beach.
