Thanks to Mr. Williamreallyhung for uploading the videos.

Samboy Lim is one of my favorite PBA players of all time. He was really an explosive scorer during his prime when the played for the San Miguel Beermen.

The Skywalker is arguably the Best Highflyer in PBA History. And he was way ahead of his time.

Now more people can see why Samboy was such a legend in the PBA, one of the greatest ever not to have won an MVP award. He had that rare ability to be able to change his shot in mid air.

I may not saw him play on TV before, but based on what I just watched, he's a poet in aerial shots.... Really magnificent.

The closest player who is as good and flashy with his drives we have right now would be Mark Caguioa. But even Mark's blinding first step can't compare with Samboy's drives.

nope, i don't think anyone can compare to the great samboy lim...just like bill walton in the nba, he could've set all sorts of records and been so much more productive, but just couldn't stay healthy for one season.

ah i can still remember the excitement in the air when he stands up from the bench and walks to the scorer's table for a substitution.

unfortunately, i never saw a game of the Skywalker in his prime... just highlight videos. the SMB i remember had him in the bench injured (1994 onwards) and guys like Bong Alvarez and Mike Mustre got most of the playing time when he returned from injury.

it goes to prove that high-flyers present injury risks and unless they don't have anything else like a jump shot or a post-up game, their career won't be productive for long.

my experience playing against local filipinos in regards to high jumpers
are the higher you jump the louder the thud when you fall on your back
or as we all know in local term...sahod

and samboy when i watch my brother's pba archieve i usually see him hit the deck hard after a drive
its really a pity that he couldnt stay healthy long enough to win an MVP

IMHO Samboy's greatest games and highlights took place in mid 80s to early 90s in games against foreign competition whether here or abroad. He always seemed to take it to another level playing for the Philippine National Team. He had tremendous games while playing in several Asian Games. He hit 3 straight 3 pointers against Team USA in 1985 Jones Cup to start 2nd half enroute to an upset finals victory. A few months before he exploded for 37 points in RP Team's only victory against Banco di Roma in the 1985 World Club Championships in Gerona, Spain. In the 1987 PBA-IBA challenge, he led San Miguel Beer (with Michael Phelps and Bobby Parks (debut)) to victory against the IBA All-Stars (Sean Chamber's debut on RP soil). Oddly enough, it was the Americans who celebrated the semis loss as SMB needed to beat them by 5 points to advance to the finals. IBA went on to defeat Dexter Shouse and Allan Caidic led Presto team. These games were televised on ESPN back in the US. I always felt that he didn't go all out in the PBA, because of the league's rough nature. Everyone knew that Samboy was a gentle person and would not retaliate if fouled very hard. As it was, Samboy hit the hardwood floor many times due to hard or dirty fouls, leading to his many injuries. I leave you with my favorite Samboy Lim picture. Enjoy "The Skywalker".

JC Intal should watch these videos. He has so much potential but he shies away from the physicality of the game. What he'll learn from Samboy is not to be afraid of getting hurt. Even if Samboy came from an injury he still played the same way, attacking the basket relentlessly.

The PBA was never the same without him.

agreed 100 %

I think we could rechristen him "The Hammer" or "Sledgehammer" owing to the number of times his head hit the floor.

Jaworski's justification for enlisting Samboy in the 1990 (?) Asiad: "How could you not call it intensity if he bangs his head against cement & still continues playing ..." not verbatim of course. (Masochism?)

1986 ABC championship vs. Korea, 10-12 feet from the left side of the basket. Samboy goes up, is challenged by a Korean defender, dips his hand & effortlessly buries the long finger roll. He routinely scored against 6-7 imports trying to block him as an amateur with NCC, with a simple, double-pump-like windmill.

Difference with today's players: Today-fancy move just for showing off, not of necessity. Samboy's acrobatics are made to elude the defender, plus he made the shot. (close to 50% career FG I think)

What's most admirable is his unwavering humility, highest paid player (for a while) notwithstanding. None of the fake Cardona-ish or Guiao-ish "angas". He let his game do the talking.

In 1990, there was a pre-season exhibition featuring newcomer Pop Cola, Purefoods and Grand Slam champion San Miguel against the Beijing All Stars, as part of our scouting in preparation for the Asian Games, the Chinese, with some members of their national team, shan tao, gong xiaobin, beat Pop Cola, 93-73 and import-less Purefoods, 81-78, against San Miguel, I remember it was tight in the early minutes until Samboy Lim exploded and brought the house down at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium, from there, the beermen dominated the game and held off the Chinese rallies, winning 79-71. I wanna see the highlights of Samboy in that game, one in which he drove to the hoop, Lim was unstoppable, not even 7'0" Shan Tao cant do anything to stop him, during the Gold medal game against China in October that year, Samboy scored 25 points highlighted by a dunk to peg the score at 76-90, although we lost, our consolation was we lost by only 14, compared to the 65-point defeat at the hands of China in the preliminaries. Lim was voted in the mythical five of the 1990 Asian Games men's basketball.

I think Jaworski's statement on Samboy Lim, when talking about members of the national team, "How could we ever leave him, when he doesnt care whether he hits his head in the cement and still continues to play 100%, thats the kind of intensity we needs."

Yes. The score was 74-90, when Samboy parted the Red sea and slammed a right-hander home just before the buzzer sounded. Garbage-time points, but the near effortless take-off and elevation was tops in my book. Not to mention those knee-high socks. :D

About a week before the 1990 Asiad, I remember the Inquirer ran a full-page story about the final cast of characters, their individual snapshots and Jaworski's comment for each player.

Jaworski's compelling snippet on Samboy needed no further justification.

Bobby Parks' partner at San Miguel during the '87 PBA/IBA challenge cup was Dwayne Polee, who never played a regular PBA game, along with other american reinforcements who saw action in the 4-team tourney, they are Hills Bros. Alex Adams and McKinley Singleton and Great Taste Milkmasters Dwight Moody. among the IBA selection, only Sean Chambers and Sugar Ray Hall (Purefoods) would suit up for PBA teams.

Watching those Samboy Lim clips of tagahanga, Williamreallyhung and the 90s PBA videos of Preyes, you would wish you go back in those days and felt sorry on the present state of Philippine Basketball, the passing of time has damaged the once proud-PBA, and basketball is still popular everywhere, but the PBA is getting less popular.

Seigle and Samboy: A Tale of Two PBA Stars

By BRIAN YALUNG
March 1, 2011, 2:29pm


MANILA, Philippines – While Danny “the Dynamite” Seigle may be sitting on pins and needles these days, he has had a wonderful PBA career.


Whatever happens on the supposed PBA trade (http://www.mb.com.ph/articles/306721/smbair21-trade-update-no-deal) being drawn up between by San Miguel Beer and Air21, every Filipino will agree that Seigle is without a doubt one of the greatest players to play in the Philippine Basketball Association.


Looking back to history, Seigle can be compared to the plight of another San Miguel legend. He goes by the name of Avelino “Samboy” Lim otherwise known as the “Skywalker”.


Just like Lim, Seigle’s career had been hampered by a spate of injuries.


Perhaps the most serious one that has made “the Dynamite” injury-prone in the latter years was the one he suffered when he joined the RP National Training Pool for the 2002 Asian Games in Busan, North Korea.


It was in this year that Seigle suffered a serious torn right Achilles tendon after making a shot during one of the team’s pre-Asian Games against team Qatar.


He was unable to play for the team and sat out most of the 2003 season due to the injury.


Both Seigle and Samboy were never named the PBA’s season MVP.


However, Seigle does have PBA Best Player of the Conference Awards (2005-2006) and 3 PBA Finals MVP Awards (1999-2000). He has never played for any other team other than San Miguel Beer and has helped the ballclub win 6 PBA championships.


As for Samboy Lim, he holds the distinction of being one of the 25 PBA Greatest Players, a member of the 1989 Grand Slam team and being the first ever recipient of the PBA Sportsmanship award.


Lim has savored the PBA gold for 7 times, 6 with San Miguel Beer and one with Northern Consolidated back in 1985 under coach Ron Jacobs.


The farthest both players have gone was to be named to PBA Mythical



Teams during their tenure. They haven’t relished winning an MVP.


However, with PBA championship rings to their credit, no one can take away the fact that both players did serve the San Miguel Franchise.


Lim now acts as the team manager for PBA crowd darling Barangay Ginebra while Seigle is obviously at the twilight of his career.


On whether the impending trade does materialize, the fact is that Danny Seigle will be always identified as a San Miguel Beerman.


Seigle will forever be known as someone who had helped the SMB franchise win 6 PBA crowns.

Such a feat is an achievement coveted by any professional basketball player, something many perceive is a fulfillment in its own right.
