This might be the oddest custody dispute in recent memory. Two time MVP and perennial NBA All-Star Steve Nash, of the Los Angeles Lakers, is fighting his ex-wife over her plans to move his children closer to him, reports TMZ. Ironically, Canadian-born Nash cited Los Angeles' proximity to Phoenix as his reason for choosing the Lakers over other suitors, including the Toronto Raptors.
Normally, a custody battle is keep a parent from moving the children further from their parents. This battle is allegedly being fought to keep them away. Why? Well, because of a gag order in the case, the exact reasons may remain unknown. TMZ speculates that it may have something to do with child support. A less cynical explanation might be that he's trying to avoid uprooting the children.
