Rajon Rondo returns to our hearts as an intern at GQ. We never joke about stripes and polka dots, especially since Rondo loves to mix them up in his personal wardrobe.
After wearing a retread Star Trek jersey to the playoffs press conference and one of the most peculiar checkered shirts ever woven, Rajon now will blog out his fashion sense for the bible of men's fashion.
GQ may have a sense of humor after all. They chose him with a sense of emptying the closet before the holidays.
Rondo is hardly a walking nightmare like Dwyane Wade, but he is not Ray Allen when it comes to creamy pastels.
What Rondo may say about fashion could be out of fashion within the season. We are waiting to see if he wears white linen now that Labor Day has passed.
If he has a color of choice in recent years, he has tended to go with shamrock green, forest green, and minty green, sometimes all at once.
Rondo's work at GQ has all the earmarks of the Devil Wears Prada (male version). He has sworn he will do whatever "bosses" request, including going for coffee.
We are grateful he did not take the job as intern for Bobby Valentine-after all, he could be out of a job before he begins. And we are sure he is sad that he cannot be gopher for Deion Branch (who needs the job as intern far more than Rondo).
We suspect Rondo is highly suited to become the new Mr. Blackwell who raked people over the coals annually with his notorious "worst dressed list."
In fact, Rondo may draw upon his personal taste to explain choices and describe the horror of mismatched outfits. Of course, some people like Rondo can throw anything on and still look good.
