It looks like Cleveland is welcoming the new guy in town very well.
Ex-Utah Jazz-turned-Cleveland Cavaliers guard Donovan Mitchell served as ‘Captain Dawg Pound’ before Cleveland The Browns faced the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday night.
Mitchell rocked a Browns No. 45 jersey and electrified FirstEnergy Stadium when he smashed a Steelers-designed guitar on a Browns amplifier.
Mitchell raised both fists in the air and was joined by new teammate Darius Garland, to swell the crowd minutes before kickoff.
The 26-year-old also met former Bengals star Chad OchoCinco during the game. He also got his first taste of Cleveland traffic.
“Mannn this @Browns traffic is crazy!!” he posted on Twitter.
Mitchell, once a trade candidate for the Knicks, left the NBA in shock when the Utah Jazz traded him to the Cavs on Sept. 1. The Cavs would eventually send Lauri Markkanen, Collin Sexton, Ochai Agbaji and three first-round picks to Utah.
The Browns cruised to a 29-17 victory over rivals the AFC Pittsburgh Steelers.
