Kings introduce Warriors to ‘Full House’ theme, but Stephen Curry is no Air Jesse
For the uninformed, “Full House” was a popular sitcom set in the Bay Area that ran on ABC from 1987-95. It starred Bog Saget, John Stamos and Dave Coulier as Danny Tanner, Joey Gladstone and Jesse Katsopolis, three men all living under the same roof well into their 30’s with one wife and five children.
Episode titles included, “Too Little Richard, Too Late,” “Claire and Present Danger,” and various other puns. You get the point: It was awesomely bad. So, the Sacramento Kings decided to announce the Golden State Warriors starting lineup Wednesday night using the show’s theme song, “Everywhere You Look.”

One of the final “Full House” episodes, “Air Jesse,” starred Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and featured some of the worst basketball you will ever see. It was the epitome of the show’s ridiculous slapstick humor.
Unfortunately for Sacramento’s sake, Stephen Curry played nothing like Katsopolis, collecting 24 points, 10 rebounds, six steals and five assists in Golden State’s season-opening 95-77 blowout of the Kings.
Boogie Cousins & Co. next host the Blazers on Friday night, and if they want any hope of achieving their first win, PA announcer Scott Moak won’t be introducing Damian Lillard to the “Portlandia” theme.
