Philippine basketball legend Samboy Lim made a rare public appearance on Saturday to attend his daughter’s graduation ceremony at the University of the Philippines Amphitheater. This, after the elder Lim suffered a heart attack five years ago.

Lim sported formal wear as he was brought on stage on a wheelchair. With him were his daughter Jamie Christine Berberabe Lim, who graduated Summa Cum Laude in Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, and his ex-wife Darlene Berberabe, former CEO of Pag-Ibig fund.

It was a proud moment for the former Letran Knight as his daughter also valedictorian of the UP College of Science and received the Joker Arroyo Medal for Outstanding BS Graduate in Mathematics.

Lim was thought to have already been bedridden after he collapsed during a Legends Game at the Ynares Sports Center in Pasig on Nov. 28, 2014.

Lim is one of the 25 Greatest Players of all time in the Philippines, having won nine championships in the PBA and three NCAA crowns. He is a two-time member of the PBA Mythical Second Team and a five-time All-Star, winning the All-Star MVP plum in 1990 after scoring 42 points.

He was inducted into the PBA Hall of Fame in 2009. He won the PBA Sportsmanship Award in 1993, the PBA Slam Dunk Contest in 1989, and the NCAA MVP plum in 1984.
