It's quite difficult to get a complete team with Ray sticking to the 1 from each draft rule, without playing KG at center.
Billups over Kidd?

I'd have

Kidd
Allen
T-Mac
Dirk
KG

Curious what anybody thinks about this, everybody was going old school so I figured I'd be as current as possible. Probably doesn't have the same exciting, dominant feel as the others because these guys are so young, but it's probably easier to imagine than some of these other teams.

Not sure I would agree. Kyrie is shooting 40% from beyond the arc (did so last season as well), Paul George 37% (38.5% last season), and it isn't like Rose is Rajon Rondo. Five guys who are all potent offensively, solid to above average defensively, plenty of defensive playmaking, can all run the floor like a gazelle, all five are capable passers/ballhandlers, and most of them are flexible enough to mesh with other players (sans Rose). Rose and Kyrie are both capable of running the offense, though Kyrie would likely be off ball more than Rose. Blake and Davis provide a lot of intangibles and efficiency down low, both are above average rebounds, and Davis is one of the better shotblockers in the league.

Obviously the rest of the roster can be fleshed out with a spot up shooter, a hustle big man, and a wing...but that starting 5 brings a lot to the table.

not the part of the floor I was worried about - you've got no inside game (aside from guard penetration and the occasional oop)
