Baron Davis thinks Cardi B is probably safe in L.A. despite her recent Crips diss on social media ... but he ain't making any guarantees.
"Cardi B ain't no gangbanger," the South Central native told TMZ Sports.
Our photog asked if anyone will "press her up" when she comes to town for NBA All-Star weekend.
Baron replied: "I don't know that. The homegirls might."
FYI, Cardi has been getting serious threats on social media for saying she hates wearing "Flue" -- a derogatory term for the Crips' gang color.
Cardi has recently claimed to be a member of the Bloods.
