Steve Nash

All Smiles

Outside Court

Steve Nash
was in a surprisingly good mood this afternoon on his way into court -- where his ex-wife is currently fighting him tooth and nail to move their kids to L.A. ... and squeeze him for tons of child support.

We asked Steve a bunch of questions on his way back from lunch -- like why he really doesn't want his kids to move to L.A. ... and whether he can elaborate on his refusal to retire from basketball. He responds to one of them. Check the clip.

TMZ broke the story ... Alejandra Nash filed court papers last week, asking a judge to lift a restraining order Steve had obtained against her ... blocking her from moving their 3 kids to L.A.

Alejandra believes Nash wants her to stay put in Phoenix because it's a lot easier to obtain child support in California ... and Steve doesn't want to pay up.

For his part, Steve has said he wants Alejandra to stay in Phoenix in case he's traded or forced to retire ... so the family isn't uprooted a second time.

Steve famously signed with the L.A. Lakers over the N.Y. Knicks in order to be closer to his kids ... so it's a little weird he's fighting Alejandra on the move.

The only reason she wants to move is for the money not the kids. Yeah she loves her kids but she loves that money even more.

TMZ fails to add that Steve Nash is already paying her something like $30,000 a month....she wants to move to California so she can get $60...,000 a month.

It is not weird that he wants to keep the kids in Phoenix and or the he didn't go to NYC so he could be closer to the kids. LA is a quick drive away from AZ, but NYC Is clear across the country from AZ. Pretty simple if you ask me. Sounds more like she is tired of being left at home and wants to be in LA so she can do one of those reality shows. Even if he isnt "technically" paying CS, I am sure she is living just fine. She is not wanting for ANYTHING!!!

I've never heard of a father fighting to keep his children from moving to the city he lives in. Strange.

It's about the kids having immediate access to their dad you idiot. And YES, if the father earns sh!tloads of money as in this case, his children should be the first to benefit. Not the bimbo girlfriends. I hope the judge lifts the order and she moves the kids right in his neighborhood!

You should be asking him why he's raping the Lakers and being overpaid $9 million for his horrible "talent". I hope to GOD the Lakers get ride of him.

I think its wrong for the judicial system to force someone to stay where they do not want to stay. I hope she wins in court.
