The six-time Premier League champion also shared some words of wisdom with Boston Celtics coach Joe Mazzulla. 35-year-old Mazzulla is a big admirer of Guardiola and his at Manchester City.

“I study a lot of Man City. I study Pep a lot. I think he's the best coach at any level, in any sport. It's had a huge influence (on me),” Mazzulla told The Athletic last February.

Whatever Guardiola told Mazzula, it sure got the Celtics cooking. They dominated the first half and never looked back, handily winning game one of the NBA finals.

Latvian NBA star Kristaps Porzingis also showed Pep some love during pre-game warmups. The meet and greet must have done wonders since the big man returned from a calf injury to score 18 first-half points.

Pep Guardiola is often considered one of the best of all time, with three Champions League titles and 12 domestic league titles across three clubs: , Bayern Munich, and Manchester City. However, this could be his last season with City, finding it difficult to sustain his motivation after so much success.

After leaving Barcelona in 2012, he took a New York sabbatical before joining the Bavarian giants a year later.
