ATTENTION NBA PLAYERS:
Rapper Trinidad James -- the "All Gold Everything" guy -- has a slam dunk way you can avoid being shot in the strip club.
We got James out ... and asked him about the Knicks player who recently got blasted in the knee leaving a booty club out in NYC.
Question is ... is there anything high-profile athletes can do to shield themselves from random violence while they enjoy some random ass?
Trinidad has an answer ... and don't worry guys, it's not the dreaded "stay out of the strip club."
