We took a break to cool down after a contentious part 1 of my sit down interview in which he said he hated me. Part 2 of the interview focuses on high school narratives, Twitter, and most importantly, the dunk controversy (lol @ the 3 dislikes on Youtube).
You recently texted me “I’m calling this next part of my life ‘Chapter 2’”. What was the defining idea and experience of “Chapter 1”?
Realizing it was Chapter 1. That happened right before I texted you about the next part being Chapter 2.
You graduated from high school a couple weeks ago. What was the overarching narrative of your four years?
“This is high school. I go to it. It seems ok.”
What NBA player’s career arch most closely resembled your four years at high school and why?
Tracy McGrady, if he had won a couple of playoffs’ series along the way.
What is the clash between going to high school and writing for ESPN. I guess what I’m asking is when one of your teachers tried to correct you, did you ever say “check Espn.com”?
I don’t think most of the people I went to high school with are really aware of my ESPN-affiliated blogging. When I try to explain it to people, they always seem either too impressed or overwhelmingly disinterested. The blogging world is difficult to distill.
How did you juggle attending HS, schoolwork, friends, writing articles and Tweeting 100 times a day?
I think I’ve reduced my tweeting to about 30-40 times daily for the majority of this year, so that made it a little bit easier. It’s not too difficult to juggle, though sometimes I feel like I’ve stretched myself a little thin (in terms of writing, not in the literal sense, unfortunately). There’s a surprising amount of time in the day left over if you eliminate the parts where you stress about the amount and nature of the snacks you plan to eat. Sometimes that leaves up to 24 hours.
Name one particular article you’re proud to have published online in high school.
I know you said to only choose one, but my ego got the best of me.
I’ve received a lot of questions concerning this following video. Take us through the day:
Basically, I told my brother Pierce I could dunk it. So we went outside, and I dunked it. That’s all there is to it. Anyone who’s met me in real life knows I can dunk with ease in the right situation. A basketball hoop is a basketball hoop, no matter how tall.
First off, how high was rim? Did you lower it yourself? Who did you think you were fooling?
The rim was somewhere between 8.5 and 9.5 feet. I won’t comment further than that. And I wasn’t trying to fool anyone. The title of the video is “Connor Huchton Can Dunk”. I can in the video, and I did. I never claimed any specifics beyond that on YouTube.
Would you cook the Digital Refrain post count books in the same manner you cooked the rim?
I don’t really know how to cook. I eat a lot of cereal and many sandwiches.
What is your opinion of the #ConnorWars (via @conrc)?
I think Connors throughout the world should do their best to find harmony in the Connor community(s).
