Joe Paterno's Death Inspires Dwyane Wade, Ray Rice, Other Athletes to React on Twitter (Photos)It's been a tough couple of days for the family of Joe Paterno and Penn State University. And many athletes and analysts — from all sports — took to Twitter to respond to the passing of the college football coaching legend.

LeBron James, Isaac Redman and ESPN's Erin Andrews are among those who sent their condolences to the Paterno family during this tough time. Ravens running back Ray Rice was even able to send out a tweet before the AFC Championship Game kicked off at 3 p.m.

Paterno was dealing with lung cancer and suffered a setback earlier in January, which led to him being held in the hospital for the past couple of weeks.
