If you watched the Golden State Warriors’ incredible
comeback against the Toronto Raptors Tuesday night, you may have seen a group
of boys putting on an equally impressive show during halftime.
That was the Union City-based Bay Area Bossez, an AAU nonprofit boys and girls basketball team that serves East Bay youth.
The team was invited to provide halftime entertainment at the game, which by halftime wasn’t looking so good for the Warriors. After being down by 27 points in the third quarter, the dubs came back with a fury, winning 112 to 103.
“That was a great comeback by the Dubs and Union City was there to represent,” said Shirl Harrison of the Bay Area Bossez.
“I think the Bossez inspired the Dubs,” Harrison added.

The Bay Area Bossez will be holding tryouts next month for sixth, seventh and eighth grade boys and girls. The team plays locally as well as travels to compete in Sacramento, Reno, Las Vegas and Hawaii.
