Yes you can shoot any shot with the backboard, sometimes people say it looks bad. It actually increases your percentage when you use the backboard.

Yes, it is perfectly legal to shoot a free throw off the backboard. Some might say that it looks bad, but whatever allows you to make the free-throw, besides stepping over the line or taking too long is alright!

Yah, but it's doesn't always look that great. It's best to swish every single one!!
