    simple answer, yes.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Honestly I can't see how some people can't shoot free throws. It's the same shot every single time.

    Most of the time, a lot of the big men I can think of that are good FT shooters can also hit mid-rangers.

    I'd say usually yes, Timmy D sucks at FTs but he's a silky mid range shooter. Lebron is slowly getting better at his FT's thus he's creating a better mid range jumper as well.

    Depends on what you consider a good FT shooter:

    Here is a list of people who shot between 70-78 % at the line last year. Many have nice midrange games.

    Is that link just a list of the number 80-129 ranking players in free throw shooting? what exactly does that mean?

    It seems like if you are a good freethrow shooter you generally a good mid range shooter as well - but not the other way around.

    Well I didn't have time to go through al lthe names and look through their stats, but under 75% FT shooting I would consider below average, whereas some are good shooters.

    I don't think it is a rule either way to answer your question, every player is different regarding hwo they approach FT's and FG's. Field goals happen in rhythm of the game, FT's involve routine and preparation. I would say that most of the time good FG % would yield a good FT percentage, but as some pointed out Duncan for example, it definitely isn't a rule.
