C's at No. 21 in Hollinger rankings

The Boston Celtics debut at (gasp!) No. 21 in John Hollinger's first regular-season, computerized power rankings. From Hollinger:

Boston is 4-4, but three of the wins have been of the near-automatic variety against the Washington Wizards and New Jersey Nets -- the two bottom-ranked teams in these rankings. Meanwhile, they were hammered by New Orleans and haven't beaten a team in the top 25.

If you're wondering about their chances to shuffle back up to a more familiar spot in the Top 10, ESPN.com's 5-on-5 debating that possibility isn't overly optimistic.
