Yeah, the rest of the country pronounces it one way.  When you are the outlier, you can't really be upset about it.

He played a great game, got a lot of minutes but his best stat was only three fouls.  Hopefully he's learning to avoid the silly fouls cause we need him.  He was the difference tonight but he can't help up us sitting on the bench in foul trouble.  Very proud of  him tonight.

The true pronunciation of El Dorado is more like El-do-rah-dough, we in Arkansas pronounce the town as the townspeople have been calling it perhaps since it's incorporation which is fine with me.

As i said in another thread,the  most shocking thing i have seen about his game is the soft touch he has .the last 2 games he has hit 12 if his last 15 FT's.and he has a very nice touch on his jump hook.i am shocked by his offense so far.i kept hearing when he was in high school,that he would not be good on offense.that is not true. this kid is unreal so far.love his game.and love the Hogs.

I live in El Dorado and do a lot of photography at the new Murphy Arts District. They actually coach these entertainers that come in for concerts on the correct pronunciation of our town. To the extent of having signs in the elevator that takes them to the stage. Happens all the time. As far as Gafford, beast mode tonight!.

Would like to see he and Thompson on the court at the same time to mix up the looks a little bit. Always wished Mike played Moses and Bobby more at the same time too. Gafford is a stud for sure though. Definitely fun to watch.

The first Arkansas big in years that gets the ball at the rim, and instinctively explodes and flushes. No need to think, no need to gather himself to launch. The defender stands little to no chance. There were a couple that just left me sitting in a euphoric state.....as a twenty year desire had been fullfilled. The hook throwdown and using the goal for cover for the semi reverse flush were breath taking after years and years and years of seeing indecisiveness, pump fakes allowing help to come over......what a sight for sore eyes.  I also loved  that almost blind pass to the cutter. It is going to be a lot of fun watching this one.

Which seems crazy because last years team had very few dunk. Barford was second on the team last year with like 8

Mike did a little bit of that against Bucknell and Samford. It's an interesting set and should give the guards lots of freedom. Gafford knows how to get it done in the paint and we have a backcourt that can score. Really excited for Thursday.

When he discovers that he is the best player on the floor, its over... Teams will have to account for how to defend him.... then there are guards waiting. He is the type of player that will make everyone better. SMH. If he develops an outside shot (which we don't if he already has..) This may be really special real quick (note his soft stroke at the free throw line.  He Runs like a deer... effortlessly  Jumps like some kid of kangaroo giraffe hybrid... as the players stated he is an animal and different type of beast/ and he doesn't  look tired. SMH.  THERE IS NO ANSWER FOR HIM. I WANT TICKETS

The Fresno State coach said that he reminds him of Aldridge when he coached him as a freshman at Texas.  Said that Aldridge had not developed his shot at that point, but he could see that he would get there with really good touch like what Gafford has.  Said that the sky is the limit for a player like Gafford and can be as good as he wants to be.

Yes! This is exactly who he reminds me off.  I don't think he is as stiff as Dwight Howard which is good!

Same thing I saw as well. If he keeps this up, his stock will soar.

Heís got all of the physical gifts, but not close to NBA ready.  He will need to develop his jumper and his handles so he can put it on the floor and get to the basket. Heís more athletic than Portis, but canít step out and shoot it yet. Talk of him being NBA ready is premature, but Iím sure glad heís on our team.

It's funny you say that. I've been thinking that he was what I was hoping for with Portis, though I'm not sure he has Portis' defensive skills... yet. As far as upside, he has already shown a tremendous amount of growth from high school to game one, and from game one to game three.

He's better than Portis was at this point in his career, and he has a natural confidence and swagger that Portis had to develop. The sky is the limit with this kid.

Being NBA ready has very little to do with being drafted these days. The soft touch combined with his freakish athleticism will turn a lot of scouts heads.
