Rajon Rondo has been around the world lately. Now that we’re a few weeks away from the beginning of training camp, Rondo has come home to the U.S. But he’s making one quick stop before heading back to Boston. This is from an email sent to us by GQ.
Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo is joining GQ as fashion intern for New York Fashion Week, it was announced today by Jim Nelson, GQ editor-in-chief. His status as an intern is effective today.
Rondo will be working closely with GQ’s fashion department, led by Jim Moore, the magazine’s creative director. Rondo will also be attending fashion shows with GQ editors and will be writing about his experience for GQ.com.
“I love the set-up so far and I’m having fun. I’m still a rookie at this,” said Rondo of his new position. “I’m humble. Anything GQ needs me to do—getting coffee—I’ll do. In my position, I haven’t done things like this in my entire life. It’s fun doing what I do, but it’s nice getting the flipside of that 9 to 5.”
Hold on… let me guess at one of the comments that will be left…
“Rondo should be working on his shooting… not interning at GQ.”
… like there are no basketball courts in New York City for Rondo to catch a workout.
