Best of the 2010s: Picking our favorite sports moments of the decade

Naming the best Boston sports moment of the decade is an impossible task.

With so many options to choose from, it's eye-opening just how fortunate New England has been over the last 10 years to witness countless unforgettable moments across all of its teams.

From Malcolm Butler's Super Bowl-winning interception to Jayson Tatum dunking on LeBron James in the Eastern Conference Finals, Boston sports has had a little bit of everything for everyone. As difficult as it is to narrow it down to one favorite moment, our NBC Sports Boston staff came up with a great variety of choices.

Best of the 2010s: Picking our favorite Boston teams of the decade

The 2010s have been very kind to Boston sports fans. In total, the teams have won six championships -- three for the Patriots, two for the Red Sox, one for the Bruins -- and there have been countless deep playoff runs during the decade as well.

But picking a favorite of those teams? That's no easy task.

Plenty of the Boston teams this decade have had talent. But some have really embodied the personality of the city. Some overachieved to absurd heights. And one was able to pick up the city after one of its darkest days and give it something to rally around.

There is a lot to like about the teams that have played this decade. Picking a favorite team is difficult, but that's exactly what we asked our NBC Sports Boston on-air talents to do as the 2010s wind to a close.

Without further ado, here's a look at their picks.
