One of the great tools in using Mathematica is ??.  ??Plot3D shows a
list of all possible options.  After playing around with a few of them,
I think the ones you are after are Boxed->False and
AxesEdge->{{-1,-1},{-1,-1},{-1,-1}} as in:

Plot3D[Sin[x+y^2],{x,-3,3},{y,-3,3},Boxed->False,
  AxesEdge->{{-1,-1},{-1,-1},{-1,-1}}]

The Axes Edge option is explained in section 2.9 of the mathematica
book.  Of course, the problem in having the axes all proceed from a
common point is that unless the graph is non colored and transparent,
it will block of the view of one of the axes.
