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

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.

Should we read anything into Tom Brady 'liking' Antonio Brown's Instagram apology?

Should we read anything into Tom Brady 'liking' Antonio Brown's Instagram apology?

That was the subject of a heated debate on Boston Sports Tonight among DJ Bean, Tom Curran, Michael Holley and Danielle Trotta.

It was Curran and Holley who were at odds over whether we should be reading anything into the social media vagaries on any athlete.

Holley: "For whatever reason, lots of players get into it. Lots of celebrities get into it...not because we [the media] are broken, but because that's how they communicate. And we would be reckless if we didn't follow it."

Curran: "It's reckless to vest any perception or presumption into it."
