“The observation of a phenomenon inevitably changes that phenomenon.” – the Observer Effect Theory Sorry, that song actually has nothing to do with anything. It just pops into my head every time I hear the word “phenomenon”. But let’s track back to Heisenberg, Schrödinger, Einstein, and a feline or two. In Particle Physics, the Observer Effect plays into things you’ve…

Patrick Beverley called out Nikola Jokic for "flailing" in Game 3, but his comments were evidence that the Clippers know they don't have an answer for Denver's big man.

1.
