Horrible, Terrible, Bad Celtic Rajon Rondo Joins GQ as Intern

Rajon Rondo — the horrible, terrible, bad, evil point guard for the vile Boston Celtics — has a new gig as a fashion intern for GQ.

Rondo will be working closely with Jim Moore, GQ’s creative director, during his time at the magazine. He will also attend fashion shows with GQ’s editors and then write about the events for the glossy’s website.

“I love the set-up so far and I’m having fun,” Rondo said in a statement. “I’m still a rookie at this; I’m humble. Anything GQ needs me to do — getting coffee — I’ll do.”

Maybe GQ could have Rondo not torch the Knicks almost every single time they play the Celtics? How about that? Maybe Rondo could stop making our point guards — who are now collectively 321 years old — look like idiots? We think that’s a good place to start. Just in case GQ’s editors needed any help.

“The crowd is booing World Peace.”

“Looks like the Lakers are going to give World Peace another chance.”
