It''s also a confidence issue and needing to not defer to Carmelo even when good scoring opportunities present themself for him. Nothing that can't be fixed.
It's not like D'Antoni came in at midseason. Fields place on the team changed. The spacing was different, the ball movement was different. Melo catching the ball and then holding onto it for 12 seconds before he makes a predictable move doesn't exactly make for a balanced offense. He needs to work on his spot up shooting, because that's basically what he's going to be getting.
