NBA star Frank Kaminsky also reflected on the impact Avicii has had on his life. 

"I don’t think any one person had an influence on the type of music I listen to more than Avicii did. Horrible, horrible news. Rest in paradise."

UFC boss Dana White also posted a photo of Avicii who was a huge combat sports fan. He even attended the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight.

Chuck Liddell posted an old photo with the DJ, saying "I don’t have the words to express my grief. You’re gone way too soon. I’ll see you on the other side my friend! Rest In Peace."

Ex-Cleveland Browns player Jason Pinkston paid tribute by quoting the hit "Wake Me Up" ... "Wish I can stay forever this young RIP" ... and AJ McCarron tweeted "RIP Dj Avicii praying for your family. You will be missed!"
