Steve Urkel Is On Dancing With The Stars Cast And In Timberwolves Sitcom Pilots

Jameel White, better known as Steve Urkel, was announced Tuesday morning as one of the contestants on next season's Dancing With The Stars cast. He was cast in a much bigger deal on Monday, however, as a Youtube video popped up showcasing him in the opener of a Minnesota Timberwolves television series pilot.

It probably isn't real and why the videographer named them the "Timbertrolls" is difficult to understand, but the Youtube video's explanation (when translated to English) makes perfect sense:

What would happen if the roster of the Minnesota Timberwolves made a TV show? There goes a commercial with Love, Ricky, Tolliver and the rest of the guys starring a comedy in the style of Steve Urkel's "Family Matters."

This rivals the Full House opener as the best sitcom opening ever and, quite frankly, it would be pretty cool to see Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love and the rest of the Wolves hanging out with the Winslow's. I'm not sure how Nikola Pekovic would react to Urkel's Did I do that?'s, though.
