The young NBA players took post-game wardrobe to a whole new level this post season. From lensless glasses to crazy, patterned shirts, their outfits sometimes garnered more conversation than the actual games.
Rajon Rondo’s name was occasionally in the mix, but he definitely was not the leader of the pack in terms of trendsetting.
That is, until now. The Celtics point guard turned fashionista took an internship with GQ during New York Fashion Week.
The magazine issued this statement regarding their newest employee:
Fashion Week is our busiest time of year–between the shows, presentations, and ya know, posing. We needed a little help, someone to run point back at home base and on the ground floor at Lincoln Center. Who better than NBA All-star-and all around stylish dude-Rajon Rondo? Rajon will be interning at GQ for the next few days, helping our game out and learning a thing or two about menswear and the magazine industry. You’ll see interviews, critiques, and blog post from the future hall-of-famer popping up all week. And from the tip-off of his time on our team, it doesn’t seem like he left his competitive instinct back in Beantown. Other interns, beware.
In honor of fashion week and Rondo’s new gig, here are his top 3 “most-fashionable” looks:
