Samboy Lim

Samboy the "Skywalker." Samboy the "Dragon." The moment he took possession of the leather and streaked downcourt for a fastbreak, excitement would build up slowly among the coliseum audience. Then, the murmur would steadily build up until it would explode into a chorus of screams and cheers. Lim had just completed one of his high-flying acts, most probably a dunk.

Observers call him the most successful player never to have won an MVP. But that's only because his gung-ho attitude to the game often resulted to bizarre crashes that would decommission him from active duty. If not for his injuries, Lim could have soared to even greater heights. But he's definitely contented where he stands right now.
