Ugh, awkward situation for sure - you don't want to screw with someone's first round pick, but it's also pretty clear who that player is going to be
If we end up giving Kobeshow some extra time just for the first round, I will not object. But hopefully we find a draft rhythm soon or it will take until opening night to get this done.
Here's my take. I'll make a 'commish' decision of selecting Lebron for KobeShow's team. The reason is because this guy is missing in action and if he doesn't show up anytime soon, we'll have to find a replacement... meaning a team having Lebron is more attractive than a team having Darko as the first pick. Extreme comparisons, but you get the point.
The victim here is Wildcat because as per the rules, he was the manager in line to pick Lebron, but he gave us the blessing to make a decision on this matter. This is a one time deal and I hope the league agree with this decision. Having said that, if Kobeshow doens't turn up by his second pick, we have to replace him. I hate to do this, but we can't continue an offline draft with a missing manager.
