That quote meant , that he will never give up not only in just basketball , but in life too . Basically he's saying he's not going to let anything or anyone get in the way of him living the life he wants to live . He's going to "go hard". That quote can define me . Cause I will never give up on life or basketball . I'm just going to live my life to the fullest. By going hard so I can be what I want to be in the future . Also I don't let people's decision / train of thought , stop me from what I want to do . Cause I'm going to make it with or with out them .
