One reason why he doesn't is because Amare is in his space to drive.
When Amare went down, Melo did it plenty, even with tyson out there.
This is selling the inevitable....Melo needs to be playing more of the 4, and spend a little less time on the floor with Amare.
Why would you want him playing the 4? Being covered by and covering 4's? He is a bigger advantage against 3's and all you need is real nba shooters at the 4. IMO you don't ask your best player to change to fit in you should change the others to fit them around him. Sure it's not easy to find stretch 4/5's, but it's even harder to find this dominant of a power 3
