Hour One on The Jay Mariotti Show: March 10, 2014:

LET MARCH MADNESS BEGIN

-- Time to treat Wichita State as potentially historic team

-- Gregg Marshall, coach, refers to doubters as ``sheep''

-- Florida veterans and Billy Donovan are overachieving

-- Donovan clearly in upper coaching elite

-- Villanova, Arizona, Michigan, Louisville all dangerous

-- Duke, Parker looked title-worthy vs. North Carolina

-- Syracuse, Michigan State, Kentucky have problems

JABARI PARKER VS. ANDREW WIGGINS

-- Parker has full package, plus maturity, and should go 1

-- Wiggins still raw, but explosiveness is breathtaking

-- Parker is first player seen worth tanking for

-- Goodell, Romo among fans at Duke

-- Wiggins been hyped since You Tube dunk at 13

-- Magazines overdo covers for Parker, Wiggins

FAN EPISODES A MAJOR CONCERN

-- Social media driving the arena noise, enabling crazies

-- Security is of utmost importance, copycats preparing

CONFERENCE TOURNAMENTS

-- NCAA tournament doesn't start until March 18?

-- National title game April 7

-- Baseball season starts March 22, so calendar skewed

PHIL JACKSON TO KNICKS

-- Wobbling NBA needs him in New York

-- He needs full power, or Dolan will mess it up

-- But must run Knicks in New York, not from L.A.

-- Jackson perfect for Lakers, but family politics in way

-- His fiancee can't push her brother out of way

-- First mission: Keep Anthony, mentor him as leader

-- Unthinkable that man with 11 rings out of NBA 3 years

LEBRON VS. DURANT

-- MVP race still wide open

-- Since 61-point night, James has struggled

-- Westbrook's poor play has dragged down Durant

-- March is month when team identities form

-- Weak excuse, LeBron blaming shooting on short sleeves

-- No other player or team adversely impacted

-- James dogged by Butler, Leonard last week

-- Don't recall Jordan going in tank after historic game

-- Why did LeBron go to Cleveland night before day game?

JOAKIM NOAH

-- Has become an MVP vote-getter

-- Unique two-way player, amazing energy

-- Dog days for other players, he's thinking title

-- He and Thibodeau disregard absence of Rose, Deng

-- Won't win East, but no one wants to play them

-- Remember Noah in clown suit on draft night

-- Chicago loves high-energy, strong-willed athletes

HEAT VS. PACERS

-- Vital to avoid Chicago in second round, so No. 1 seed key

-- Pacers have stopped playing defense, guarding perimeter

-- Both struggles against best teams, East softening them up

-- Rockets embarassed Pacers

-- Selig oversells globalization, at expense of sport

BARRY BONDS, BATTING COACH
