James Harden inspires me for various reasons. He motivates me to push myself and become a better basketball player. His inspiration made me play well with my team in Farmwell station League and we were the champions for the season. I am hoping to continue to learn from his games. Harden also motivates me with this quote: “ If you have a dream, chase it, no matter what it takes.” This quote inspires me to accomplish any goal in my path, to do my work until it is done. This way James Harden not only influences me in playing basketball but also in various other parts of my activity.
