What’s your day-to-day dressing for work like?

In our business, you have the players like Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett, and while our players are very stylish, we’re a little more buttoned up on the business side. But it is an entertainment business, and I’m not dressing for the boardroom every day.

Describe your best power suit.

I have a lucky suit, which is the one I was wearing the night that we won the championship in 2008. It got drenched in champagne, and I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to salvage it, but the hotel was nice enough to dry-clean it for me. Whenever we have a big game now, I make sure to put it on.

What’s your favorite item in your wardrobe?

I have a pair of kelly green cargo shorts. I throw them on and I feel like me. They remind me of my college days, when I had a pair of Army shorts that I wore for four years straight. It’s the adult version of that.  —  Rachel Raczka
