It was Mailer who wrote of Muhammad Ali’s pursuit of n’golo. Applied to the Rumble in the Jungle participant, the Congolese word for ‘force’ was a chase for ego, status and strength.
In Mailer’s words ‘It is not the n’golo you have, but the n’golo you are denied that excites the harshest hysterias of the soul.’
As a basketball disciple and universal sporting fan, I hope Basketball Australia has taken on the n’golo creed in its revamp of the National Basketball League.
