Original Story (10/27/21): To pass the time in the 2020 NBA bubble, current league MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and his brothers would frequently gather around to play rounds of UNO. With the family card game celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, Mattel has teamed up with Nike and Giannis on a full UNO x Nike x Giannis collection.

Footwear in the collection includes five colorways of the Nike Zoom Freak 3: four primary color colorways and a fifth member-only black colorway adorned with an UNO 50th anniversary logo on the tongue and an all-over wild card print. Other footwear includes an UNO x Nike Air Force 1 and Offline sandal. Apparel includes a black tee and hat with Giannis’ number 34 displayed with UNO cards.

The collaboration also includes a Giannis-branded UNO deck featuring a new “force a turnover” rule. The deck will be sold on Mattel Creations and NTWRK starting November 11. The Giannis x UNO deck will also be integrated into the UNO! Mobile app.

“I want every product to be genuine and authentic, and playing UNO with my brothers is a big part of our lives,” said Antetokounmpo. “The Nike team has done a great job bringing my ideas to life, and I think they’ve created something for every Nike, UNO and basketball fan in this collection.”

“Working with Nike and Giannis to design and curate this collection was truly an honor, and this collaboration shows how UNO can bring people together, including the Antetokounmpo family,” said Ray Adler, Global Head of Games, Mattel. “Partnering with this iconic brand and world-renowned athlete is the perfect celebration of UNO’s 50th anniversary.”
