Jimmy and stars of the 2018 NBA Draft join forces for a TGIF-style opening credits, with an original theme song, "Play-by-Play" written and performed by Jesse Frederick (who sang the themes to "Full House," "Family Matters" and "Perfect Strangers"). Full lyrics below:

Sometimes you wonder
“Am I ever going to get my break”
But you’re the real deal, you never fake it…
You know you’re going to make it!

Even when the game’s a ‘foul out’
If coach never seems to look your way
There’s no shame, you keep your head in the game…
Tomorrow everybody’s gonna’ know your name!

Play By Play
Nothing’s going to stand in your way
The shot at buzzer
No worries, no sweat
As long as you ‘believe’
It’s going nothing but net

Play By Play
Never looking back… to yesterday

Moving off the sideline
Taking your shot
It’s a slam dunk you’re headed…
Straight to the top…

Play By Play
