With the NBA off-season still in full swing, Rajon Rondo is utilizing his time to learn and soak up as much information as he can. In the world of menswear and the magazine industry, that is. You see, for the next couple of days, Rondo will be interning at GQ Magazine where he will be required to do everything from posting blog entries to doing fashion critiques to conducting interviews.
In his press release, the Celtics point guard had plenty to say about the new, exciting opportunity:
“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.”
Oh, don’t worry, Rondo. We knew you were a rookie at this whole fashion thing and were in need of some guidance when you decided to wear this. #neverforget
