Dude, I thought Griffin was going to beat the s!@#% out of that guy that flipped him but somehow he held off. What a puppetmaster!

As used by ESPN commentator Luke Winn when discussing OU basketball player Blake Griffin's role after being flipped, elbowed, hit, and bloodied but maintaining composure without retaliation. Thus, instead of being the "puppet" he was the "puppet master" over his rivals.

Noun. Mostly used under political connotations, but can be applied elsewhere.

Definition: A person who uses their actions or words to control someone or something of a lesser will, also known as pulling the strings of someone or something. Often a puppet master uses actions in addition to thoughtfully assembled words (with a commanding or guilt-inducing voice inflection) as his or her weapon. Puppet masters use their victims to acquire things, such as sex, money, anything of monetary value, and emotional holds over others (their puppets). Often occurs (but is not limited to) in close relationships such as intimate romantic relationships, parent-child relationships, and employer-employee relationships. A puppet master's interactions with their victim/s is almost always beneficial for the one pulling the strings.
