Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo has a unique style on the court and off it. With a couple weeks to go before Celtics training camp, Rondo also has some time on his hands. To that end, Rondo has taken on an internship at GQ Magazine.
Here’s the press release:
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.”
A posting on GQ’s website explained Rondo’s internship will involve interviews, critiques, and blog posts on men’s fashion and the fashion industry.
