If you have an electron moving in empty space, it will be represented by a wave packet. But packets can spread over time, that is, their width increases, with it's uncertainty in position increasing. Now, if I throw a basketball, why doesn't the basketball's packet spread as well? Wouldn't that cause its uncertainty in position to increase so much to the point it disappears?
EDIT: I realize I wasn't clear what I meant by disappear. Basically, suppose the wave packet is spread over the entire Solar System. Your field of vision covers only an extremely tiny part of the Solar System. Therefore, the probability that you will find the basketball that you threw in your field of vision is very small.
