ESPN recently gave Wahlberg four hypothetical matchups pitting Boston athletes against one another, and he picked Brady, David Ortiz (Red Sox), Bobby Orr (Bruins) and Larry Bird (Celtics) as his four winners.
But his job wasn’t done yet. He went with Brady over Ortiz and Orr over Bird in the semifinals, setting up a clash between two Boston icons in the final. He stayed loyal to TB12 until the very end, naming him the greatest Boston athlete of all time.
You can check out Wahlberg’s selections in the video below.
NESN.com, you may remember, asked a similar question of you, the fans, back in 2010. Your pick: Bobby Orr.
